Writing Tips & the 84th Kid Lit Blog Hop

Carpinello's Writing Pages is back once again with writing tips from the authors interviewed. These interviews are from March and April 2016. As always, read and please leave a writing tip of your own in the comments.

Keep writing. Don't let setbacks discourage you. Go to conferences, take courses, join a critique group, and read, read, read—Darlene Foster, author of Amanda in Alberta-The Writing on the Stone

Don’t write to make a living. Write because you love it—Jessica Therrien, author of Children of the Gods series
Write what you’re passionate about. Dig down inside to find the emotion to put on the page. Don’t publish the story before it’s ready. Just because you can easily self-publish doesn’t mean the story should be quickly put out there before its polished. Get away from your writing regularly to refill the well with activities and experiences that inform and energize your stories. But most of all, don’t write/publish in a vacuum – join a supportive professional organization related to your genre/category of books to learn and grow as an authorBetty Bolte, author of Hometown Heroes

Keep writing! I find that if I take a break, it’s much harder to get back in the swing of things. Also, do your research about the publishing process to determine if you want to go the independent or traditional route. Whichever route you choose, be informedElizabeth Woodrum, author of The Maisy Files series.
