TIPS FOR WRITERS
1. Just Do It. (Three best words placed together. It says it all.)
2. Carve out time from everywhere. There will never be enough time to write. You have to find the time and make it happen. (See Tip 1.)
3. Write what you read.
4. READ! Everything. Even the stuff you don’t write, but write the stuff you like to read the most. Quote from Stephen King: “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.” Great quote.
5. Believe in your story. On the road to publication, you will get rejected. If you don’t believe in your story the rejections might make you want to quit. Don’t quit. And if you don’t believe in your story, write another one. (See Tip 1.)
6. Believe in yourself. Eleanor Roosevelt: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
7. Learn your craft. Go to workshops. Find writiing groups to join. Books that help me: Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook by Donald Maass. Story by Robert McKee.
