Read. Read a lot.
It doesn't really matter what you read. Honestly, as long as you bring awareness to it. For instance, read the classics, but don't try to emulate their style. Read best sellers but don't try to copy the plot.
Instead, when you read, think about why you like what you're reading, and how you might apply that to your own work. Anything you don't like - why not? What doesn't work?
And my best suggestion is to take your favourite books and dissect them. Really work out why you like them, what the author has done to deserve your love, and see if you can learn from that yourself. (less)

I've also been dipping in and out of How NOT to write a novel, which to me is the most entertaining book about mistakes we all make as writers. (less)

Scotland has so much more to offer than tartan…. it has amazing book festivals!

I admit it, I feel a bit bereft this year.  I’m writing this in Edinburgh as the most weird of Augusts ends. No festivals! And in particular, no book festival. Edinburgh International Book Festival did host some amazing events online, which were hugely enjoyable, but it’s not entirely the same. So this month I thought I might pay homage to our country’s amazing selection of book festivals.


Each yea

This was the first of the Austen project, which set out to re-write Jane Austen's books for a modern audience. At the time I thought this was a weird idea; I think Jane's books are pretty timeless, and while it may take you a few pages to get used to ...more
