Just Write: Here's How!
After writing more than one hundred books, it still amazes me that I have been lucky enough to spend most of my life doing what I truly love: writing.
What makes a writer? The desire to tell a story, a love of language, an eye for detail, practice, practice, practice. How well should you know your characters? Do you need to outline before you write? How important is length? Now Walter Dean Myers, the new National Ambassador for Young People's Literature and New York Times bestselling and award-winning author, walks you through the writing process.
Anyone can be a writer, with a little help from Walter Dean Myers!
