Kimberly Gibeson asked Richelle Mead:

Do you have any tips for a young writer I'm 13 and you inspired me to become an author. I just wanted to know if you had any tips for me. BTW Love all your books and series especially Georgina Kincaid

Richelle Mead I have two pieces of advice I always like to give young writers. One is to write what you're passionate about. A lot of people who are starting out will stress over whether their idea is too weird, too common, etc., etc. You can't worry about what others are going to think when they read it, though. Just write what YOU love. Your passion will show through and make a story good--even if it's something really out there or a concept that's been retold for centuries. My other tip is to write each day, even a little, even just a page. So many people never finish books or stories because they don't keep up with it. A day's break turns into a week's break turns into a year...and suddenly, they've lost their rhythm. Keep up with it! It's hard but worth it. Good luck!
