Amber Smith asked Kate DiCamillo:

I love writing stories and I love reading yours! What age did you start writing and do you have any advice for a young author like me?

Kate DiCamillo Hi Amber. I was pretty old (30!) when I started writing. I give the same advice to young people and old people about writing, and that advice is basically this: keep your eyes, ears, mind and heart open. And make some deal with yourself about *how* you are going to do the work. For me, that deal is: 2 pages a day.
