Young writers,

Take a deep breath. Now exhale. Let your words spill onto the page. Write about what you see. What you hear. What you feel. Write everything.

Take another breath. Find what amazes you. Find what is beautiful in the world. Find what is not. Exhale. Let your words paint a picture.

Read. Listen to music. Be quiet. Make noise. Look at art. Be inspired. Be an inspiration.

Wonder. Let your mind wander. To places you’ve been, places you want to go.

Close your eyes. Daydream. What fills your mind? What makes you laugh out loud? What makes you cry?

Write without pause. Watch those words take shape. Admire their form. Order. Re-order. And when you are ready… share.
