Your Library: Storytelling

Competitions being run by the library
Are you someone who has always had an urge to tell a story but keep putting it off?
Maybe you feel that what you create will not be good enough, that you do not have enough time, or that you have not got have anything interesting to say.
However, you should take some advice from professional writers who say "If you feel the need to write, you absolutely should write".
There are tips all over the internet to get you started.
The Scottish book trust has a really good page of advice covering where to get inspiration, through to how to get started, and on to honing your writing skills.
There are suggestions from publishers too, Penguin has posted advice to reassure writers that it is ok to write badly and make it up as you go along.
