Teen Writers' Magazine

I can't thank movellas enough for the opportunities and inspiration I've had since joining the site! In 2014 I managed to win a place in an amazing writing Masterclass (and private interview) with the bestselling author of the 'Uglies' series- Scott Westerfeld- when he came to London on a 2-day tour... a massive, massive thank you to movellas for that truly inspirational experience <3

We asked him as many of your questions as we could, so now I'm excited to reveal all the advice we managed to squeeze from what was genuinely one of the most exciting days of my life.

This magazine also contains a bunch of other things to do with writing, reading and movellas. Ever wanted access to all of Movellas an secrets, top tips and guidance in one place? I hope this helps :D

*I'd also like to give a big thanks to my wonderfully supportive and friendly movellians that have helped with this: HeartTaunter, Raven711, Writer_Girl, Jade.P and so many more! :)


24. Advice From Fellow Movellians!- getting the work-write balance

So I asked for some advice in a mumble about experiences with getting the right balance between writing and schoolwork, and two movellians kindly replied with their experiences and some useful tips:

1. "Well, what I try to do is do my homework before I write for fun, or try to do my homework during school" - @zeechick

2. "I tend to focus more on school work on weekends when I get more time, and once I've finished it, I can go back to writing :D I say to myself 'you can write if you do your homework' - it's like a reward :p " - @Lia is a Cookie

3. "I usually say: okay so I have two and a half hours for homework. Then I try to get as much done as possible, then say: now you get writing time".
