What book changed you the most as a child?

Write by Midnight Pep Talk 11-25-19

This month, find inspiration in other people’s words. Pick a debut novel in your genre and read a few pages before you start your daily writing session. You’ll gain insight into how other published authors are breaking out and hopefully discover something new to motivate you with your own project. Bonus: you’ll have guilt-freeĀ pleasure reading time andĀ have read a new book by the end of the month.
