Writers at any age will always have to deal with doubters in their lives, but teenagers especially are mocked for pursuing their dream of being a writer.

Many people think literature is a dying medium, getting published is too competitive, blah blah I’m sure you’ve heard it all before–I certainly have!

handwriting, text, writing, sketch, drawing,
