Why Ava Devine Is An Inspiring To Writers
Ava Devine is a writer who has been writing since she was a little girl. She first wrote about her love of animals when she was in school and then began writing about children’s books after graduating from college. Today, she has a successful writing career and is a very well known author in the children’s book world.
In her own words, she “was always a little bit of a loner, but now I am not so lonely because I have a lot of good friends who love to write.” One of her many friends is Jody Hill, who helped her with her writing career. “She has been such an inspiration to me,” said Devine. “I was also inspired to start writing because I had no one to talk to, but I’m sure there are many other writers out there who are just like me.”
When she met Jody, she realized that the two of them shared a lot of the same interests and were able to talk about the many things that were interesting to both of them. When she started reading about her friend’s writing process, it all clicked for her.
“When Jody started writing, she would often think of a situation where people would respond to her story. She would think about that situation and what she was trying to say,” explained Devine. “Then she would tell us about the different things that would happen during that time. That’s why I think it’s really important to have an idea in your head before you write. The worst thing to do is to have this idea and then not have the courage to try it.”
Another thing that helped Devine with her writing is listening to what other authors have to say. Many authors share their thoughts and ideas with other writers and allow their fellow authors to read their work. Devine found this valuable to her writing and she has read a few of these books with her friend. “They were great to read and they really helped to inspire me to write my next book.”
Since Jody encouraged her to write more, she has written a number of books. She has even written two and even has a book manuscript. “I think if Jody was around when I was a little kid, I would have written a lot more.”
Jody also encouraged her to write because she knew how hard it can be to write. “Even when you have an idea, it can sometimes be very difficult to get it down on paper and make it work. I know that feeling because I have had those problems and I was always discouraged because of it.
In Jody’s case, she was always the one who encouraged her to write. “She was like an angel to me and I felt like I could actually do anything because of her.” She credits her writing success to Jody. “I owe her a lot for giving me a chance to succeed.
