Most recently spotted in the wilds of continental Europe, Lynn E. O’Connacht lives on a steady diet of fiction. Her favourite treats are fantasy and soft science fiction. The lynnetbird is more commonly known as the lion-bird as cats have built up a positive symbiotic relationship with her. Sightings of Lynn E. O’Connacht are rare as she is a shy creature, most likely to be seen in the early mornings. One can recognise her by her distinct song. Her common call is short consisting predominantly of secondary world prose. She has been known to mimic realistic fiction or science fiction on occasion.

Read. Read a lot. Write as much you can. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. We always make them, even the best of us.

And take writing advice with a grain of salt because it might not work for you for any number of reasons! That's okay! Don't be put off by that. We all work differently and discovering what works best for you is part of learning the craft of writing.

That said, a lot of the advice that's out there (such as "Don't use too many dialogue tags") exists for a reason, so always ask yourself why someone is recommending something and take it from there.

Lastly, I've said some variant of this already, but experiment! You won't discover if something works better for you if you always do the same thing. And don't give up if things don't work the way you want them to the first time. It takes practice.

I hope that helps!(less)
