Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book
I’ve reviewed this book before. But I have to do it again. =) I read it for the second time and still absolutely adore it. Anyone who wouldn’t give it five stars is just crazy. Ok, any writer out there that wouldn’t give it 5 stars is just crazy.
Title: Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book.
Age Level: 10+ (or whenever you can sit down, read it, and understand it =) )
Violence: ABSOLUTELY NONE
I’ve been reading the GTW (Go Teen Writers) blog since July of 2013. I am amazed at how my writing strengthened because of just reading that blog and reading this book. I also found several good writing friends through the blog that are absolutely wonderful! =)
This book goes step by step through the Macro Edit and the Micro Edit which is totally amazing. Before I started reading this book, I had no idea what a Macro or a Micro Edit was. In fact, I hardly knew any of the writing phrases they used. But after several months of reading Go Teen Writers, this book made even more sense when I read it for the second time. Just because you read it once doesn’t mean you’re allowed to shelve it forever! You have to reread it often!
Morrell and Williamson do an absolutely fabulous job with explaining everything. I love it! They are such great authors! =)
This is a fantastic book, even better the second read! I recommend it for ANY WRITER, not just teens!! It doesn’t matter if you’re teen or not, as long as you are a writer, this book should be helpful!
