I got inspired to write a book by my sister. When she was in the fifth grade she wrote a book called The Other Side of Caroll. After it was published and in Keplers and on Amazon I decided to write a book too. I first had the idea of a picure book. It was about a tiger that wandered away from his family and lived in a village. After a few lessons drawing and writing my book, Naomi Kinsman came to my house. She told me that I could make my story a chapter book. So we brainstormed more ideas. After a couple lessons we decided to put some magic in. I came up with the idea of magical glitter that caused comotion in the village. And that is how I got the idea for Here Comes the Tiger.
You should try writing a book someday. It can teach you a lot about writing. If you’re writing fantasy, fiction, or even historical fiction you’re still practicing your writing skills. You’re building your stamina. Also you’re using your creativity. Sometimes teachers aren’t always looking for the perfect students, they focus on students with their own sense of things. So if you write an essay or a book or anything, remember to put a little creativity into it.
It took me about a year and a half to write Here Comes the Tiger. The editing process gave me frustration along the way. At times I didn’t have patience or I needed to come up with more details. Sometimes I thought, “Isn’t this good enough?!” I just kept on working and putting more details in and itpayed off at the end. A few months later Naomi Kinsman came to my house with a printed copy and I was proud of it!
I chose to give the proceeds of my book to AIF, American Indian Foundation, because my mom and dad work really hard to support the organization. AIF gives money and education to less forunate kids in India. Since my mom and dad have worked really hard to give to AIF, I thought that if I gave some money with my book it would help kids in India and us as well. It feels better to give then take because when you take, you don’t care about others. When you give, good thoughts reflect both on you and that person.
50% of book proceeds will go to the American Indian Foundation. The other 50% provide scholarships for future Your Name in Ink students
