My Son Has Started a Writer's Blog for Young Writers

My son surprised me this summer by informing me he was 220 pages into a fantasy novel. He has been working diligently on it, and on world building, and has now started his own blog about the writing, editing and selling process, http://maxximenez.livejournal.com/. It is aimed at other young writers, as well as first time authors.

Please encourage him, give him links to helpful sites, and make him feel part of the writing community.

I have not read his novel, but I have put him in touch with good writing friends who are guiding him.

I will not represent him, but I will lead him to the right people.

This should be a very interesting experience.

Best of luck to him.

That's very cool.

I'm not sure how much help I can be, but I'll check it out and pass it along.

Proud moment, or what? :-)

went ahead and friended him on LJ. I'm writing for a different (read: older) audience, but us first-time writers need to stick together!

OH! That's so much fun. My daughter and a few of her friends are starting a young adult review site. It's great to see them all trying this at a young age.

Good for him. I'm going to check it out.

My son is also a teen writer and I keep encouraging him to befriend others in his position. I gave him the link, thanks!

How old is your son? My 14 year-old son surprised me the same way this summer. I'll send him a link to your son's blog. What a good thing for young writers!

They say abilities run in families: it must be true.
