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! :)


12. Best Advice

Augustus:Emperor of Rome : What's the best advice you received as an author?

Scott's answer: The best writing advice came from Raymond Chandler: write at the same time every day, the same room, the same chair, and don't let yourself do anything else at that time. You don't have to write, maybe your brain won't write today. Your two choices are write or get bored at staring at the wall. Your brain will start writing. And whenever you go to that room, at that time of day, you'll be like well this is the writing room and I have no choice. And that's the best way to keep writing. Its the cure for all writer's block.
