Written. Edited. Published, all at 15!

I have always aspired to become a writer or poet, as my life long career. I am already a published poet at 15....now I have started working on writing a few books, Fiction and Non. My tip is that it doesn't matter how old you are, if you love to write...then write! It's your life, you should do what you love....whether your 5 and writing a fictional story about unicorn's and rainbows.....or if your 95 and just now finishing your life long memoirs. Keep true to yourself when writing, don't try to please anyone else but you....unless your trying to become published, then your going to have to write around what you think the public would relate to or like. Or maybe your publisher would like to change the title or end plot, who knows?....but if your only writing to write, because you love it and you don't care what anyone else thinks, then go for it! Show the world your god given talent, and ability! If writing's not your thing and your more into drawing (like me, I love writing AND drawing) or sculpting or something, apply the same rules, just be you....and enjoy everything you have now, because you don't know what you've got until its gone. I hope you follow your dreams, and pick up that pencil...the world can't read your mind, and know all the brilliant stories lurking in your head.....so show us what we are all missing:)) You should also look up J.K. Rowling's(author of Harry Potter series) biography online, its really fantastic...I was inspired:) I hope you are too!
