Tipsy Tuesday

For the serious writer:

  • Writing is about learning from every book you write what you could have done better so that the next time you do it differently
  • You have to be serious about your writing before you can expect anyone else to be.
  • The first draft doesn't have to be perfect. Get something down, and then you can fix it.
  • Publishers, especially in this economy, are not going to give you an advance for a book you haven't written.
  • Keep writing. While you're waiting for your book to find a home, start the next one.
  • You have to write something that you feel passionate about.
Happy writing!
