ASK AWAY

Bought this yesterday. While I was numbering the pages, I read a few of the instructions the book asks you to do. Today I just wiped my feet on a page while jumping up and down. This book is insane…but definitely sparked my interest.
Writing Advise

The best writing advise I got as a writer, was to write what you want to read. It goes without saying that this is what has kept me going, especially whenever I go to the library or bookstore and I’m not able to find something that sparks my interest.
Basically keep going, no matter what anyone says. It doesn’t have to apply to writing, but anything you are particularly passionate about.

" I wrote a book. It sucked. I wrote nine more books. They sucked, too. Meanwhile, I read every single thing I could find on publishing and writing, went to conferences, joined professional organizations, hooked up with fellow writers in critique groups, and didn’t give up. Then I wrote one more book. "

“You have to write the way you see things. I tell people, Make a list of ten things you hate and tear them down in a short story or poem. Make a list of ten things you love and celebrate them. When I wrote Fahrenheit 451 I hated book burners and I loved libraries. So there you are.” —Ray Bradbury

Writing advice from the best.
