Hi! I'm Naomi Hughes, writer of quirky young adult sci-fi and fantasy. I live in the Midwest US, a region I love even though it tries to murder me with tornadoes every spring. When not writing, my hobbies include reading (of course), traveling, and geeking out over Marvel superheroes and certain time-traveling Doctors. ...more

Great question! In list form (because I'm addicted to lists), here are the biggest bits of writing advice that helped me when I was a newer writer:
1. Don't be afraid to write badly. You can edit "bad" writing, but you can't edit a blank page. And often writing badly (or just writing stuff that you know doesn't quite fit the story you're trying to tell) is the way you figure out how to write better.
2. Learn how to take critique. Try to leave ego out of it. This is HARRRD but it's one of the biggest keys to improving. Also, remember that part of learning to take critique means figuring out which critique will help you make the story better and which is irrelevant.
3. Tons of people will give you writing advice. Not all of it will be helpful for you. Different people have different methods; if you try following a piece of advice and it feels wrong or doesn't help, feel free to discard it.
Best of luck with your books! :)(less)

Freaking adorable. The world-building didn't feel super fleshed-out, and I feel like the title doesn't really fit, but I don't care because Tim and Elliott are stupid and adorable cinnamon rolls and I love them SO MUCH. Go read this immediately. ...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

Megan Whalen Turner
“Are you badly hurt?"
"Hideously," said the king, without sounding injured at all. "I am disemboweled. My insides may in an instant become my outsides as I stand here before you.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Megan Whalen Turner
“The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead in the hollow of the queen's shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Megan Whalen Turner
“I am not sure I trust you."
"You can trust me with your life, My King."
"But not with my wine, obviously. Give it back.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Megan Whalen Turner
“Relius looked away. "He said that you...cried," he said softly.
"But not that he cried as well," said the queen, amused at the memory. "We were very lachrymose... would you like to hear more romance of the evening? He told me the Guard should be reduced by half, and I threw an ink jar at his head."
"Is that when he cried?"
"He ducked," said Attolia dryly.
"I had not pictured you for a fishwife."
"Lo, the transforming power of love.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia

Megan Whalen Turner
“Oh, that," said the king with a shrug. "That isn't your honor, Costis. That's the public perception of your honor. It has nothing to do with anything important, except perhaps for manipulating fools who mistake honor for its bright, shiny trappings. You can always change the perceptions of fools.”
Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia
