Hello and welcome to
This is the coziest corner of Scratch; a little nook of books! Lose yourself in the pages and let your imagination get swept away...
Whether you're a #1 New York Times bestselling author or a kid who wants to get their work known,
THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
Imagine sitting down, curling up with a nice pile of thick books and just losing yourself in their pages...
And then turning to your computer/notebook and spending a few hours pouring out your imagination onto the blank pages.

Writing tips (max. 2; delete & replace)
@InspireBookz : I have a tip for writing that I think everyone should know about, and that's how to cure writer's block. When you write, always add in elements of strength but also weakness. Put a part of yourself into your characters, for instance, I have a fear of heights so by placing this trait in someone, I will feel compelled to describe this fear and invoke emotions in your readers.
@Chess9: Make interesting characters. Make them human, nobody's perfect! Make them have unique character traits and personality that they act on. Make there speech and actions reflect that personality. This will make your readers want to read your book, and make the more dull parts of your book less boring.
