Read as much as you possibly can, especially (but not only) the kind of stuff you want to write. I really believe that a kind of "learning by osmosis" happens when you read. The more you read, the better you'll write.

2. Sit down and write. Just like anything else, you get better with practice.(less)

So far I've researched city zoos, traveling toy salesmen, and my family's immigration records. This is going to be fun!(less)

The Rhino in Right Field by Stacy DeKeyser
"This was almost 3 stars, but it jumped to 4 due to the ending. I wish the book made the time period more clear from the start. Something about the shinyness of the cover made me think this was a contemporary, so the language the kids use was bizarre " Read more of this review »

A really interesting look at the "Battle of the Atlantic" during WW2, and the young Wrens whose game play was invaluable in devising a strategy against German U-boats. It will send me to look for other books on this topic.

“But loving someone isn't only making promises you know you can keep. That's just playing it safe. Where's the moral fiber in that? Loving someone is making promises you want to keep with all your heart, and then doing everything you can to make it happen, even if you fail sometimes. But the point is to try, because that's how you stretch yourself and learn you can do more than you thought you could. And maybe next time, you'll stretch a little farther.”

“Home can be only one place. That's what 'home' means . 'Two homes' is like 'most unique.' Unique means one of a kind, nothing else like it. And just like something is either unique or it's not, someplace is either home or it's not. Telling me I had two homes just made me feel like I had no home at all.”
Stacy DeKeyser, Jump the Cracks

“A billboard announced JESUS IS LORD AT THE PINE TREE MOTEL.

"What, nowhere else?" I wondered out loud.”

“Because nobody but a reader ever became a writer.”
