I like this quote.
I'm not trying to say that in finishing a novel, I'm in any way equal to God, but I feel like these words capture the overwhelming feeling that comes over me when I set out to create something from nothing. It's not easy. And that blank page stares at me, reminding me that I'm only on page one of 300-500.
But when I finish that novel and hold the print version in my hands . . . Even though I still doubt that the book is perfect. I can't help but see that it is good.
How does the blank page make you feel?
Also, a few of you have asked questions about the Teen Author Boot Camp. Here are your answers:
Registration for Teen Author Boot Camp will open on December 1st.
Writers Cubed is offering ten need-based scholarships to the conference. On November 1, 2015 a "Scholarship" tab will appear on the Writers Cubed website where teens can apply online. You will be asked to write an explanation of why you feel you deserve the scholarship and also be asked to upload a letter of reference from a teacher. (If the teen is homeschooled, a letter may come from a non-family member).
Scholarship applications will be accepted until January 15, 2015 and recipients will be announced no later than January 25, 2015. If applicants aren't granted one of the ten scholarships, they will still have a little time to catch early-bird registration which ends February 1, 2015.
I hope that helps!
