PERSEVERANCE: Zane says writing a book is hard but also enjoyable.

Zane Mendelson: A book called Jinx

I’m writing a book called Jinx. It’s about this guy who lost his mom and denies that she’s actually dead and because of it, he is put into a mental institution, and throughout the book, it’s him breaking out of the mental institution and overcoming the troubles of him believing that his mom isn’t dead, and like realizing that he really has to move on because his mom is dead. 

I probably started to like writing in first or second grade. We did those little, tiny writing assignments — even if it was just, like, what are you thankful for, I just got to put words on a page and I think that’s really when I fell in love with it — when I could realize there was another way besides speaking to express how I was feeling, what I was thinking.

When Mr. Forrester sent out the email about this challenge [National Novel Writing Month], I checked it out and I really loved it, so I stuck with it. If I love doing it, I might as well take upon myself writing this book,

The book is definitely the most physically and mentally challenging thing that I have ever done. We have to write a certain amount of words every day which is just super, super hard. Sometimes you lose inspiration along the way, and I have — many, many different times. It’s a really good thing to do in case I want to have a future in writing, and even next year if I do this challenge I’ll have really good experience, so I really, I really enjoy this. But it’s definitely a very hard thing to do.
