Author Tips Part Two – Learn To Write – From The Pros

Our last blog focused on “writing a book”  – here are some more tips from pros, this time on the writing process  :

– Set yourself a writing goal.  Give yourself a set number of pages or words to accomplish every day.

-Choose a place to write that inspires you, or where you can find peaceful, quiet time.

-Share your work with a writing buddy – exchange chapters for ideas and constructive criticisms

-Say Simple – as the New York Times writer Colson Whitehead says, never use three words when one will do.

– Try to write first and edit later!  Bill Harper advises that ” Creating and editing are two separate processes using different sides of the brain, and if you try doing both at once you’ll lose. ”

What are you waiting for?  Start writing ! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
