  1. Reblogged this on Just Another Steel Magnolia and commented:
    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!!!

      1. 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.

    1. 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 🙂 🙂
