With the Inklings Book Contest deadline around the corner, it’s time for some encouragement from one of our writer friends! Megan E. Freeman, author of the novel-in-verse, Alone, advises, “write often and to share your writing with trusted readers. There is nothing like having a reader to inspire a writer to write more.” Her most trusted reader has always been her dad. She still “sends him my words and he still reads them and talks about them and tells me he loves them.” 

Megan shares:

“Write and play and arrange and rearrange those letters on the page, and then find a trusted reader or two. Invite them into your writerly world. And then go write some more.”

We appreciate your positivity, Megan! You can get to know Megan better at https://www.meganefreeman.com/
