Kids Can’t Write?

What’s next?” said Novelist Tom Robbins “Kiddie architects, juvenile dentists, 11-year-old rocket scientists? Any parent who thinks that the crafting of engrossing, meaningful, publishable fiction requires less talent and experience than designing a house, extracting a wisdom tooth, or supervising a lunar probe is, frankly, delusional.”

“There are no prodigies in literature,” Mr. Robbins said. “Literature requires experience, in a way that mathematics and music do not.”

My Journey to the Bookshelf (pt.1)

I have been writing all my life, starting stories but never ending them. I would stop writing for long periods of time and then I would start again. I even tried the NaNoWriMo challenge but it was not for me. It was not until a month and half/two months ago that I actually began a story. Other than the fact that I love mythology, especially Greek and Egyptian, I honestly do not remember how the story came about. I worked diligently on my book for a couple of weeks telling myself that I would be done by July 20th. Then I stopped for a while. It was not until a few weeks ago that I decided to start back up again. I said that I would write 13 pages a day (the amount I thought I needed to reach my goal date). July 20th came and went and I was still not finished however…
