Earlier This Week Veronica Returned to her old High School to Inspire Young Writers
“When I was little, I liked to play pretend, but you grow out of that,” she said. “Then I realized that I don’t have to act it out with stuffed animals or with my friends. I can actually write this stuff down.”
Roth credited Lois Lowry’s “The Giver” for introducing her to the world of dystopia, but noted that she didn’t set out to take “Divergent” into the imaginary and unpleasant setting.
In fact, Roth intended “Divergent” to showcase a world that she would like; a place where people are held responsible for their actions.
“No one should put me in charge,” she joked.
To encourage young writers, Roth provided some simple advice: Keep writing.
“One of the struggles of becoming an author is to open yourself up to the world,” she said. “Writing isn’t easy. It never has been. But if you love it, just keep doing it.”
“Fuel for writing is everywhere,” she added.
Roth also encouraged young writers to share their work with others and ask for feedback.
If you’re patiently waiting for the release of book 3 Allegiant or the Divergent film next year why not go and see How I Live Now starring Saorise Ronan!
