BEST WRITING ADVICE IN 10 WORDS OR FEWER
I found the following at my favorite Writers Digest site, and had to share it with you. My favorite ‘piece of advice’ below is high-lighted in ‘red’ . . . because that’s exactly what I’ve done with my writing. Oh, I’ve tried quitting once – but as my husband puts it, “You are happier when you’re writing.” He’s right. The one thing I do for me - is I write. What is your favorite piece of writing advice or what keeps you writing? What keeps me writing are the stories inside my head struggling to be written! Rita
