I picked up a writing book for young writer's (hey, I'm young at heart!) called Spilling Ink by Anne Mazer and Ellen Potter. The book looks like a lot of fun. First of all, it is written like a MG book (bigger font, easy to read sections, etc.) and second, the cover is bright yellow with a huge ink spill on it. How could I NOT buy it? I can relate to ink splotches and scribbles and scratch-outs and....well, you get the picture.
Has anyone read this book or bought it for a young writer? If so, what are your thoughts?
Also, I found the author's website Spilling Ink, which is packed with great posts! A recent one is about writing creative non-fiction. This site is an encouragement to children and teen writers (and me too!).
