Teenage Authors Encouraged

The author tells her story about how she got started writing at a young age. She had a minor setback, but she didn't let that stop her from writing! She had work published at a young age and her success continued to this day. She has spent  a long time on the best seller list! The author traveled to a school to tell the students (who want to write too) her story. The kids were told  to never to give up! I can't believe the teachers actually had to tear the kids away so they wouldn't be late for their next class! I didn't have the problems she had growing up-but now as I write this I'm feeling encouraged that I may be able to write something one day! But in the meantime I'll just have to keep on trucking until I get it right. That, and keep this article for future reference. One day something good  for the students will come from this!
