    Read everything you can get your hands on! Check out as many books from the library as you can get your hands on, and study the differences between the classics and contemporaries. And be sure to join the SCBWI! (http://www.scbwi.org)

    Have you heard of the Ramona Series by Beverly Clearly? Good Books! They are very funny. Ramona-and her sister, Beatrice, or ‘Beezus’.
