25 Tips on Writing
photo by Li Lian Di
Ever had an idea for a book or a story and you knew it was great but it just stayed up in your head instead of going down on paper? It seems so easy until you actually sit down and start well...writing. For all aspiring writers out there- you aren't alone and you are in good company. I personally find it very inspiring that so many of my favorite writers struggle to get the words out and that they really need to push themselves. I personally just try to get a little bit of my work-in-progress done every day. Even if it is just a couple hundred words, even if it is total crap, at least I have something down on the paper and it is extremely gratifying to see that word count grow. Terrified for when I need to start revising and rewriting but I'll worry about that when I need to :)
Found this great list of writing tips and insight and thought it had to be shared as a daily good thing. I especially loved the tips from Margaret Atwood and Joyce Carol Oates.
