Rd a literary dragon trainer and leader of a global writing guild Polly faces the almost impossible task of going beyond her good ideas to finish a publishable piece of fiction All the while Polly and Scrum become entangled in a dangerous scheme that threatens the future of every writer on the plane. Writing is something that’s often seen to be a rigorous monotonous process but Polly through its imaginative characters and entertaining and sometimes brilliantly humorous storyline proves that it is just the oppositeThe story centers around a teenager called Polly a fifteen year old who is filled with brilliant ideas – the one about the vampire wolf in particular made me laugh – but has trouble developing them into actual novels and pieces of writing I must admit I was skeptical and wary at first part due to the purplish children’s book type cover part due to the dreariness of previous writing guides I’ve bored through – but I must say that there is something for everyone in Polly Wants to Be a WriterPolly’s problem with writer’s block very much parallels the struggles that I face as writer Like Polly I’ve too struggled with developing an idea into a coherent piece of work The moments in which Polly learns to write are brief – and although some might not like this but personally I found this is what made this part novel part instruction manual such an engaging read Writing tips aren’t crammed into the novel but rather slowly introduced to the reader with lengthy parts of actual storyline in between – time in which the reader can slowly digest what he or she has just learnt Come to think of it the way in which the novel is written very much parallels a writer’s journey of growth Writers don’t instantly become masters of their craft but rather slowly build up their set of skills over a long period of timeThe characters prove to be both uirky and imaginative Polly the main character of the novel is someone that we all relate to We share in Polly’s troublesome plight from the very beginning of the novel feel Polly’s anxiousness in Dr Mammozarack’s “depression clinic” and share in the success that Polly feels when she completes the first draft of her story at the end of the novelThe story is lighthearted and a uick read I loved the representation of our inner literary critic as a dragon The idea of “muzzling” our literary dragons is a metaphor that I’m sure will help younger kids understand the importance of allowing our ideas to run wild during the first few stages of writing Scrum was actually one of my favorite elements of the book – without Scum the novel wouldn’t have been as nearly as funny as it is I was laughing when Scrum ate Polly’s laptop I think as readers we were meant to feel sympathetic towards Polly but I had a great laugh when reading that particular bit of the bookThis novel is great for young aspiring writers like Polly but also for those who just want something to read – for Polly is a great story in itself The Maze impossible task of going beyond her good Each Peach Pear Plum ideas to finish a publishable piece of fiction All the while Polly and Scrum become entangled "ATLANTIS" SOLON AND PLATO FOR FROST? in a dangerous scheme that threatens the future of every writer on the plane.

    An exciting and entertaining work of fiction paired easily with non fiction ideas to help young writers along their course Polly Wants To Be A Writer is a genius tale crafted specifically for the young writers of today I enjoyed the story with its different characters and rich settings getting lost in the pages as I followed Polly on her journey to becoming a great author More than the story though I found that I learnt about the writing process and how to inspire myself throughout the tale Everything was woven seamlessly together as Thomas skillfully introjects the lessons into the proseThe novel bridges a lot of age groups It read like something meant for the eleven to fourteen age group but has appeal for people older or younger due to the easy language fun characters and important lessons I’ve worked with Laura for a little over six months now and this novel really lets you know exactly how she is as a person She truly strives to help young people and answer their every uestion just like the story’s Ms Patience WhitfordI like Polly fall under the category of “budding female author of fifteen years old” but unlike Polly I developed my love of writing before my dragon was born In the novel Ms Whitford explains that literary dragons the part of an author that allows them to edit their work into something worth publishing come around puberty which was very true for me I fell in love with the craft at about the age of nine and would almost write every day from six in the morning until school and then five until bedtime My mother worried for me But it wasn’t until I was about twelve or thirteen that I started to find ways to polish my completed work In this way me and the main character are very different Because I was so far into the habit of writing I rarely ever got serious writer’s block until this year Reading Thomas’ novel I came to realize that the reason I hadn’t produced anything I’d been proud of for months was because my own literary dragon who I have named Petra has been snacking upon my words and eating at my subconscious Polly Ms Whitford Scrum and even to a certain degree Dr Mammozarak have shown me that the only way I can ever become a professional writer is to muzzle my inner dragon and put the words down on the pagePolly Wants To Be A Writer is a book worth five stars for its ability to be both an informative non fiction as well as an entertaining story It has a cute plot and richly formed characters I would recommend it to anyone ages nine and up who dreams of being an author or who has the unfortunate duty of being one of those parents who has to deal with us aspiring writers and our extensive piles of journals I hope you will enjoy Polly and her journey just as much as I did Good luck taming your dragons

This is actually a reality for all writers And I was very impressed by how it was brilliantly brought into the storyIn a fast paced adventurous but fun story I was encouraged to keep writing and learned how to start out properly as a writer And this happened through numerous amazing and well thought out characters such as Ms Whitford who reminded so much of the author because of her determination to help young writers Another character was Scrum I always found him adorable because of his silly antics but he made me understand that writers’ dragons aren’t there to bully you but to help you And he made me love my own dragon tooI can’t bear to spoil anything in the book but let’s just say that with everything will keep you on the edge of your seat With Polly’s story I started reading as a weak willed writer and finished completely renewed as a determined writer knowing that the world needs my storiesAfter reading it I was so fired up to write that I was able to finish my own first draft or should I say my lump of clay I recommend this read to everyone who wants to be a writer and is finding it impossible to do so Maybe your dragons are getting out of hand?

    Entwining fantasy with reality Laura Thomas deftly weaves an intriguing story of fifteen year old Polly who aspires to be a writer and her struggles to become one Mrs Thomas' debut novel showcases the all too real struggles of a teenager in modern day society trying to make it as a writer However not only does Polly have to deal with writer's block and not being able to finish a story she also has to deal with a dragon that suddenly appears in her bedroom Named Scrum this dragon imposes upon her life with snarky remarks and hurtful critics of her story She goes to her favorite author Ms Whitford for help with her dragon and learns that Scrum is Polly's inner literary critic She must learn to control him if she ever wants to graduate from being a wannabe writer and become a full fledged one Along with Polly's journey to tame Scrum and take control of her own writing there are also several different interesting characters that make the book multifaceted and layered Polly has to deal with Yulleg Snoblivski a famous author her own age who goes to her school Yulleg in turn has to deal with his own literary dragon who has issues of his own and the pushy publishing companies when all he wants to do is uit writing once and for all Not to mention parents with secrets; secrets about parents; dragons of all shapes sorts and smarts; and a power struggle for the last copy of a certain book In this book Mrs Thomas not only engages you with an imaginative fantasy story and fictional world but also educates you on how to tame your own literary dragon Polly and conseuently the reader learns about the ins and outs of the publishing world; as well as the process of writing a story from the first brainstorming session to the first draft This book is good for anyone who holds an interest in writing but has never been sure of how to go about it or has tripped over a stumbling block on the road to their finished story Addressing all the common issues that most writers have grappled with Ms Thomas has created much than just an instruction manual for transferring your story from mind to material She has produced a book that is both informing and entertaining I highly recommend this book for any wannabe writers out there

    Okay actually I made it about two thirds of the way through this book Polly the protagonist is nothing than an immature brat She shows distain to every other character in the book including her literary dragon Scrum who is supposed to help her write the perfect story I do not enjoy reading a book where all the main character does is be rude to everyone

    The fate of every writer is at stake And it's taking all of 15 year old Polly’s determination to forget that and concentrate on her short story Blink Another literary dragon wiped of the map Getting really hard to concentrate on her story nowYou suck you’ll never make it the distracting snide voice breaks in again She knew she should have muzzled her dragon before getting started on her first draft Oh the trials of a writerBrilliantly creative with memorable characters Thomas’s hybrid novel is a one of a kind Who would have imagined a cross between a writing guide and an exciting urban fantasy narrative Well Laura did and she made it work brilliantlyThe storyline is simply put awesome Dragons check Despical Villains yes Uniue Characters you've got them A perfect story readyBut it doesn't end thereOh the writing advice I have never read any thing like that before and trust me I have read a lot of books and articles on writing With long arguments either claiming that writing cannot be taught or with detailed step by step procedures you are better of skipping writing guides are just about the most useless things you can get your hands upon That is before Polly Written by a writer experienced in pretty much every writing related field the advice within is priceless This is a journey which catches up to you and takes you along in an unstoppable flow This is a book which gets you writing This is a powerful bookThe plot is captivating to say the least Urban fantsasy with dragons and calculating villains keep you hooked on to the book till the very end Fast paced funny and serious at appropriate moments this is perhaps the only writing guide which is actually readable You learn loads without being overwhelmed The idea of training your literary dragon is obviously so much cooler than 'countering writers block' And Laura knows itThe best part of this book are the characters which was specially epic for me as I always judge a book through the characters Reading about Polly is as if the book revolves around you for any aspiring writer You see her face similar inner turmoils but this time you have Ms Whitford a ualified dragon trainer at your side to help out Every character is perfect for its role and there are no extra unnecessary characters Motives are clear and everyone is determined to get their way creating mass conflictWith no unnecessary dialogues or details the book never lagsIt is a seamless read as you don’t have to work through it As Thomas says she writes in a way that the words don’t existAs an aspiring writer this book really jolted me back to my writing and to appreciate the fact that I AM a wannabe This may seem cute to read but upon reading Polly Wants to Be a Writer you'll get what I mean This is a book I have nothing but praise forIf Polly can do it then so can I And if I can do it so can you

    Writing is something that’s often seen to be a rigorous monotonous process but Polly through its imaginative characters and entertaining and sometimes brilliantly humorous storyline proves that it is just the oppositeThe story centers around a teenager called Polly a fifteen year old who is filled with brilliant ideas – the one about the vampire wolf in particular made me laugh – but has trouble developing them into actual novels and pieces of writing I must admit I was skeptical and wary at first part due to the purplish children’s book type cover part due to the dreariness of previous writing guides I’ve bored through – but I must say that there is something for everyone in Polly Wants to Be a WriterPolly’s problem with writer’s block very much parallels the struggles that I face as writer Like Polly I’ve too struggled with developing an idea into a coherent piece of work The moments in which Polly learns to write are brief – and although some might not like this but personally I found this is what made this part novel part instruction manual such an engaging read Writing tips aren’t crammed into the novel but rather slowly introduced to the reader with lengthy parts of actual storyline in between – time in which the reader can slowly digest what he or she has just learnt Come to think of it the way in which the novel is written very much parallels a writer’s journey of growth Writers don’t instantly become masters of their craft but rather slowly build up their set of skills over a long period of timeThe characters prove to be both uirky and imaginative Polly the main character of the novel is someone that we all relate to We share in Polly’s troublesome plight from the very beginning of the novel feel Polly’s anxiousness in Dr Mammozarack’s “depression clinic” and share in the success that Polly feels when she completes the first draft of her story at the end of the novelThe story is lighthearted and a uick read I loved the representation of our inner literary critic as a dragon The idea of “muzzling” our literary dragons is a metaphor that I’m sure will help younger kids understand the importance of allowing our ideas to run wild during the first few stages of writing Scrum was actually one of my favorite elements of the book – without Scum the novel wouldn’t have been as nearly as funny as it is I was laughing when Scrum ate Polly’s laptop I think as readers we were meant to feel sympathetic towards Polly but I had a great laugh when reading that particular bit of the bookThis novel is great for young aspiring writers like Polly but also for those who just want something to read – for Polly is a great story in itself

    Cleverly crafted and highly informative Laura Thomas has absolutely blown me away with Polly Wants to be a Writer The blend of fiction and non fiction is truly genius and teaches the reader a lot often without them even realising it It's bursting with useful tips and the protagonist Polly was such a relatable character; she was much like myself in that she was a young writer struggling to go from a wanna be to a somebody The fact that Polly was able to overcome her obstacles and actually finish her short story and edit it is hugely inspiring to me At the beginning of the book she was in pretty much the same position as I am now confined to only sharing her stories with her laptop yet somehow she underwent this amazing journey that bettered her as a writer I found myself asking myself If Polly can do it why can't I?The main thing I learned from this book however was that you should never ask for help from anyone until your first draft is finished This was an important lesson for me to learn because I was always asking my friends and family What should I do next? and How should I change this?” I never even realised that I was hindering my creativity but in hindsight I can see that's exactly what I was doing In my first drafts I always panicked over all the little details and sought advice at every turn And honestly? The results sucked Now I know better Next time I'm just going to write details be damned They can always be finalised in the editing roundsI also loved the fantasy element Laura brought in when she used the metaphor of dragons to represent our inner critics Polly and Scrum’s constant banter was very familiar to me as I often have such debates with myself in my head For example innocent little me asks “Is this idea good enough? It is too cliché?” And my dragon whom I have named Alex replies “Good enough? It’s not even good enough for the rubbish bin Cliché doesn’t even begin to cover it” And so marks the death of another idea rest in peace However now that Alex has been trained and firmly muzzled no ideas are murdered in such a cruel fashionuntil the editing stages that is Overall Polly Wants to Be a Writer was brilliantly written and has really helped me along my writing journey; after reading it I feel like I’m one step closer to reaching my goal of becoming a published author one day It has also inspired me to continue writing and editing my novel Hunted which I had previously left unattended for three months So thank you Laura for a wonderful read and for the push I needed to get my butt in gear again

    Dragons writing adventure and reading What could you ask for? And if you want something that combines all of these good news I have just the book for youTo be perfectly honest when I first read this book I was sceptical I thought it would be like a manual or even a children’s story told in a patronising manner But as soon as I read the first few pages I knew that it wasn’t like that Hints from Ms Whitford one of the main characters aside from Polly and Scrum combined with an actual story line that intrigues really keeps you interestedPolly’s situation is a ‘real’ one – she’s 15 suffers all the usual ‘girl trouble’ and her parents have just separated Aside from the fact she has a smelly grumpy dragon in her room her thoughts are teenage too and this means that you can connect with her If Polly can do it why can’t you?The tips that are given really are worthwhile so if you’re struggling with getting those first few words down this book will definitely be of use Besides that if you are scared of your literary dragon – your inner critic the dramatic voice that tells you you’re rubbish – this book will help you overcome your fearThrown in at the deep end with a dragon is probably not how you would want it to be done but Polly really helps you through this uickly This book can’t be read in one sitting and that means that you can figure out your literary dragon’s story along with Polly living though her own Laura’s writing style is gentle but firm; a no nonsense techniue which combined with Scrum’s sassiness and the tips she gives gently pats it into your head as opposed to some of the other writing manuals that attempt to drum it in Overall it’s rather effectiveBy the end of the book you find yourself with a lot confidence than when you went in and Laura leaves the perfect story challenge at the end for you to get stuck into which you can then send in to LTC for a potential publication on the site Or perhaps you’ll have an idea two in your head about your next story Whatever you have when you finish you’ll feel a lot better about itDon’t believe me?

    Prior to reading this book I had a dream of being writer But it was just that; a dream With all the pressure of school work and exams I felt like I'd never fulfill my dream So when I found this book I thought it would be perfect for me And I was so rightMy first impression of the book was that it would just be full of boring tips for being a writer that I'd heard a million times before But it really is uite the opposite It's an inspiring tale of a young girl with a dream to be a writer just like me or you I never thought it would enthrall me as much as it did and I never thought in a million years that I would feel such a connection to the main character Polly It made me realise how many other people are in my exact situation and that we can all achieve our dreams together if we just put in the hard work and dedicationAnyone will tell you it's a difficult feat to become a published writer Being unable to finish that one very first draft can be difficult and Polly portrays this struggle beautifully She represents every single young writer across the globe in that she is always putting off writing her first draft As soon as you start reading this book you will feel a connection with PollyYes this book is about teaching young writers about the realities of life in the writing world but it does have a fantasy side to it which makes it so captivating There were many times while reading this book where I was so fascinated that I just didn't want to put it downThis book has the perfect mix of teaching and fantasy making you learn things without even realising I strongly recommend this book for any aspiring writer who thinks their stories suck which let's face it is the majority of young writers
