FantasyLover wrote to IC recently, asking her some questions about writing, publishing, and agents (plus, asking if the response could be posted over here)! And so here's a snapshot of Isobelle's response.

...My advice is to try coming through a different door, especially given that you are young and have plenty of time. I would certainly focus on school right now, and when I wrote anything, I would focus on short fiction. It can be first submitted to school for various classwork, and then it can be entered into short story competitions. A good way to amass a book is to write a series of related stories, which can then be used to apply for a mentorship- something you are more likely to achieve having written and won or have even been a runner up in short story competitions...

    It's good that IC can spend some of her time giving you a insightful response FL. You're really lucky to get that kind of indepth and analtical advice. Hope you are going well with your writing. ;D Remember to start on a small scale of writing competitions and gradually build up to the bigger scale. :D
