1. Read copiously -- check out stacks of books at the library and read all you can. It will help you develop your own style.

2. Write horribly -- If you only write when you feel like you're good at it, you'll never get anywhere. Keep writing, even when it's awful. You can edit later.

3. Research in the kids' section -- Nonfiction geared toward children is succinct and a great place to start learning about facts you wish to work into your fiction. You'll be surprised at how much you can learn in a short amount of time, leaving more time and better focus for the more detailed research you'll need to do with more thorough works.(less)

If writing is a hobby, I can feel free to engage in it only when the mood strikes me, but if it is my job, my career, my profession, then I must write and so I do. That doesn't mean I will always write brilliantly, but I will always write. Somehow or other, that will get me through any creative block.(less)

“What’s it like being a writer? Mostly it’s like being a child surrounded by adults. My friends have grown-up careers. They balance spreadsheets, analyze data, negotiate deals. They build things, heal patients, teach children. Meanwhile, I’m over here saying “Let’s pretend.”
Jennifer Froelich

“I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

“When a child first catches adults out -- when it first walks into his grave little head that adults do not always have divine intelligence, that their judgments are not always wise, their thinking true, their sentences just -- his world falls into panic desolation. The gods are fallen and all safety gone. And there is one sure thing about the fall of gods: they do not fall a little; they crash and shatter or sink deeply into green muck. It is a tedious job to build them up again; they never quite shine. And the child's world is never quite whole again. It is an aching kind of growing.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

“There's more beauty in truth, even if it is dreadful beauty.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

“When I face the desolate impossibility of writing five hundred pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me, and I know I can never do it. Then gradually, I write one page and then another. One day's work is all I can permit myself to contemplate.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
