Love this post!
Dear Kid, (cuz yeah, that’s what you still are)
You’re a daydreamer. And good news: that doesn’t stop. Bonus points: it pays off someday. In the not to distant future, you’re gonna get published for the first time. How great is that?!
But here is the thing…you gotta KEEP writing. Even when it is shit. ESPECIALLY when it is shit.
Don’t throw out any of your work. That’s a pain in the heart you can’t get back. Every bit of writing should be kept. Just in case. If anything, you can see how you’ve grown. Or have a good laugh.
Backup EVERYTHING. Anything you save on a laptop, save in other places. Hell, email it to yourself. Because when the time comes and you don’t do that, you will hate yourself. Trust me.
Write more. Put writing at the top of your priority list. Fill those note books with ideas…
