Thinking to publish a book as a teenager (student)? Creating a book as a teenager is as easy as it is difficult. A bundle of emotions follows us either as baggage or as a thing that we never talk about.
From the age of 13-19, we are vulnerable, emotional, and like clay – we can be molded, in any way we want. So why don’t we change those heavy emotions to a creation of life that would comfort others?
There must be others suffering like you too.
Whether it is Love, friendship, heartbreak, or just another imaginary world where our emotions are our strongest power – you can explore and let others get lost in your world too.
The more we read and feel, the more we feel inspired to write. Be an open loop for people to find infinite loopholes where they can find their own safe haven.
As a teenager, writing can help you to find your sanity in your story too.
“Write your story, experiment with it, feel it, let it entangle you, and then let it out to the world to see”
The biggest example of a famous teen writer – is Anne Frank; the times where she lived weren’t the ideal situation for a 13-year-old but what she wrote is still alive today. Her diary was relatable, emotional, painful, and a struggle story while she felt love, frustration, hate, and appreciation for all that she had.
Dan Elconin, was seventeen when Never After was released. A student and a successful writer too. He emoted his emotions as words in a beautiful way that made his readers fall in love with his world of writing.
