My New Mentors Write YA

I used to have a list of famous people that I’d like to meet running through my mind in an evolving commentary: I’d shuffle Nelson Mandela in front of the Dalai Lama, and, depending on my mood, Madonna and Bono would trade places with Ricky Ponting and George Gregan. But now I have a new list filled with real people, and the quote I’m sharing has come from one of my new mentors, Brenna Yovanoff.

“It’s tempting to wait, to hold of on writing the thing you love until you feel like you’re good enough to do it justice, but I don’t think you can. You only grow into your voice and style by writing the things you really care about, because caring about something forces you to put yourself into it. It forces you to push forward, to write the uncomfortable things, and that’s also usually the good stuff.”

Try substituting writing with living, voice and style with life, and write with live.
