"Dear Judy, I think the main point of kids books is to show that things that happen to you also happen to other kids. \r\n\r\nIt makes kids feel that they are normal. \r\n\r\nI thought I was weird for doing and thinking some things, but your books make me feel OK." That's from Brian, age 13. \r\n\r\nTo me, this is a class about being free. \r\n\r\nIt's not as scary as you think, but you have to be willing to take that chance. \r\n\r\nIt's risky. \r\n\r\nAnd I hope that during the course of this class, you will learn what I learned which is nobody could teach me to write. \r\n\r\nI can't teach you to write. \r\n\r\nBut what I hope I can do in this master class, is share with you what I've learned about writing over 50 years. \r\n\r\nThe best advice I can give you if you're starting out, or even if you're caught in the middle, is don't give up. \r\n\r\nAnd don't listen to anyone who tells you you can't write because the person who's saying that has no idea what's inside you. \r\n\r\nI'm Judy Blume, and this is my MasterClass.
