I was writing last night and got thinking about the best advice I’d ever received or lessons I’ve learnt through trial and error as a writer. Anyway it inspired me to make a blog post about it!
Lessons I’ve Learnt in Writing
It’s okay to feel uninspired – but that’s no reason not to write
Carving out time is half the effort of being a writer
The better planned out a character is, the more they surprise you
Having chapter/plot outlines makes for less room to rant and get off topic
Don’t go straight to background story – readers need action to get hooked
You don’t need to describe your character in painful detail, down to every freckle
It’s always good to keep at least some of your writing in a non-techy device – trust me
. . .
And that’s all I’ve got for today! Would you like to be an author someday? What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever received? Drop it in the comments below and help a fellow writer out :p Have a good weekend!
