Are you worried or unsure that your writing will be taken seriously by editors and publishers? As a young writer this is a stage of growth and expansion with my writing, so criticism is welcome, but I take it to heart and very seriously. I ask myself: Do I feel confident in turning in a work of my writing - bringing it to the next step past just sharing with friends, family, school newspapers, and etc? This is the big step. This is bringing your writing from the foot of a mountain to the summit. How far will I be able to go? Will I succeed? Confidence is a massive pillar in a young writers foundation. How do we know the difference between true constructive criticism from false destructive cynicism? How do young writers bring this passion to fruition? How can young writers make it if we cannot be taken seriously? I think we are all smart enough to know that grammar and substance are important.. We deserve a chance to be read by thoughtful and professional individuals.
As a young writer how do you see yourself within these circumstances and posed questions?
