It sounds so obvious, but even if you don’t know where you’re going or what you’re going to do in your story, write. Sometimes you'll Find that the story finds you.

The second best piece of advice I could give is that you should read. Read as much as you can. Read different kinds of books. Learn what makes a “good” book. Live words. (less)

If I am in the middle of a novel and find myself getting "stuck", I will go and write some poetry, or a short story, or maybe even just write some notes in my journal. Sometimes the words that we are looking for are not ready to be found! Do something else, and come back later.(less)
