This Writer’s Life: Five Pieces of Writing Guidance!

5 Pieces of Writing Guidance

Welcome to Episode 39 of This Writer’s Life! While I always have a guest who I admire on at the end of these videos to share unique creative advice from their process, this time, I’ve got my own writing guidance to share with you and young writers! Five simple things that have and do help me in my writer’s life, that I hope help you a whole bunch too.

And of course, a special guest!
Writer I admire, Erin Entrada Kelly,
Newberry Medalist and author of so many amazing novels!

With her terrific creative advice, she offers encouragement about what to do with all your ideas: be true to you while following the creative muse.
She also gives us a special glimpse into her notebooks
to show where her creativity has taken her!
Here’s a printable 5 Pieces of Writing Guidance PDF!
About This Writer’s Life

The goal of This Writer’s Life is to show young writers what writing looks like from the inside with honesty, tips, activities, and cheering-on in order to spark kids’ own writer’s lives. My favorite thing is to help kids develop their identities as writers, discover their individual writing process, and tap into their unique voice and imagination. Each episode also features someone from a creative field offering a piece of advice to inspire them!
