I stumbled upon this post by Writer’s Digest on 20 writing tips from great authors. If you’re a “struggling” writer, or just in need of some guidance, then you should read this post. I especially loved #19.

What advice would you give writers today?

Love it! I’m partial to #9 and then #20. 😉 THANKS! Great post!
Ooh, I love these kinds of lists! Going to go read it now! 😀
I enjoyed reading these. Tell me, did you go to Thriller Fest 2014? If I’d had the money and vacation time available, I’d have gone in a heartbeat!
Hey Kate, no, I didn’t make it to Thriller Fest either. Thanks for commenting 🙂 🙂
Thanks for sharing this 🙂

Interesting article with writing tips. My favorite is to write one page a day. Writing is a solitary profession and procrastination is our greatest enemy. If we endeavor to write just one page a day, and I love to write early in the morning so it is a routine. It starts my day off with a great accomplishment! I hope you enjoy this “reblogged” article!!!
This is another great blog with rich information. Thank you for sharing!!
Thanks so much for the link. Great writing tips!
Persistence. And to be daring.

And blocked at work, I’ll check it when I get home. 🙂
Ah this was great. I like all of them even though some contradict each other. I think Anne Rice is probably my first choice in what she said that everyone is different. Then Neil Gaiman because his is true for everything in life, not just writing. Then I would place Elmore Leonard’s because I am so tired of writers throwing in non relevant bits in their works.
Anne Rice gave some plausible advice. When it comes to great authors as well as novice ones, I would listen to their tips and sometimes relate to it. But I don’t apply it all, or, at least, not all at once. Neil Gaiman is one of a kind, and I also liked Annie Dillard. Thanks for your comment 🙂 🙂
