I'm actually relaxing in Perth and Margaret River at the moment, but being the super duper organised freak that I am I got all my posts written and scheduled before I flew away - and I'll tell you, it's one long flight from the east coast to the west coast of Australia, over 5 hours. I'll actually be jet lagged when I get back, so I've certainly got my RFWer story written and scheduled for the day after.
But this post is about writing our novel, right? As an avid reader of Writer's Digest, I thought I'd do my take on a recent article I read in the January 2012 issue.
I'll just bring up one of the 7 tips WD offered:
DON'T TAKE SHORTCUTS
- Let it hurt for half and hour then get back to the keyboard.
- Learn from the critique if there is one. The publishing industry actually wants new authors.
Here's a couple of quotes -
"Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go."
"If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it."
