I'm not anywhere NEAR good enough for publication, but this is sweet advice. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely feedback, thank you! Gives me hope I have a chance now (though I'd probably want to wait anyways, until my writing has improved drastically). Its lovely knowing age doesn't have to be a factor (much) when writing, and it doesn't dim your chances at getting published.

Wow! I've read a lot of different things that in turn either inspire me to keep writing or make me feel momentarily hopeless, but this is the first place that I've ever read about teenagers who have gotten their books published. Thank you so much!
I find it a bit unrealistic for these tweenies to publish their books without a year or two of developing their writing skills. Well, the editor can take care of that so if it's possible for them, why can't us?

I'm crying. I'm going for publishing as the youngest ever author... I thought it was 17...
