Tips for Writers
how important writing is to you.
a plan, setting aside blocks of time to write, learn about
writing, and read in your genre or books on writing.
a journal!!! It's very important as a writer to write
what you know and have experienced. Just writing occasional memories
will help spark ideas and help you ground your stories w/real
classes or join online writing groups. I can't stress
enough how important it is to have the motivation and support
of fellow writers!
daily! I know, I scoffed at this one when I read again
and again in writing manuals to write everyday. But, it really
does pay off. Even if you just sit in front of your computer
for an hour and jot down ideas. Every little bit counts!
Submit! Submit! Don't give up! Rejection will come inevitably.
Don't lose heart because one or two or five editors feel your
story/novel is not for them. If you have it in you to write,
you have to be tolerant of rejection.
