Do you have any advice for young writers?

If you love to write, keep on writing, but don’t forget to read, too! Read as much as you can, and try to read about all sorts of things that interest you—history, nature, science, art, sports, or anything else you’re curious to learn more about. Curiosity is a writer’s best tool: it will teach you a lot about the world, and it will also give you many wonderful ideas for your own stories.
