Default What are some writing tips for young writers?

Do you have any writing tips for someone writing a long story?
My age is irrelevant, but just saying young in general.
Im just starting out... Any tips/Suggestions?
Thank you, all answers will be appreciated.

Write. Read this book. Visit library when you have writer's block.

I totally agree with those suggestions.
"Write" means basically "just do it." You should not have to be told this. If you want to be a writer, you should just be writing already.
To that I would add: "Read."
Not just that Vogler book (which I've read and every aspiring writer should read) but also the books that inspired it, the books by Joseph Campbell. I have a list of more recommended books at
And in addition to the library, I also recommend the bookstore. Not just the mega-chains like Barnes & Noble but also used book stores. Problem with going there, though, is that you'll spend money there.
