Writing Advice to Welcome a New Year
Thanks to self-publishing, more people are writing books than ever before. And many of those people have advice to offer you. But not all writing advice is created equal. Some of it presents tales of luck and magic that no one can replicate: “I met my agent at a party in NYC, and here’s how you can, too!”
For today’s tip, I asked my writing friends to offer you their favorite piece of writing advice from the past year. Some of it comes from their own work, some comes from their favorite authors, and some of it comes from novels. But all of it will help prepare you for a successful New Year of writing.
