Read as much as you possibly can, especially (but not only) the kind of stuff you want to write. I really believe that a kind of "learning by osmosis" happens when you read. The more you read, the better you'll write.

2. Sit down and write. Just like anything else, you get better with practice.(less)

So far I've researched city zoos, traveling toy salesmen, and my family's immigration records. This is going to be fun!(less)

Quotes by Stacy DeKeyser  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“But loving someone isn't only making promises you know you can keep. That's just playing it safe. Where's the moral fiber in that? Loving someone is making promises you want to keep with all your heart, and then doing everything you can to make it happen, even if you fail sometimes. But the point is to try, because that's how you stretch yourself and learn you can do more than you thought you could. And maybe next time, you'll stretch a little farther.”
Stacy DeKeyser, Jump the Cracks

“Home can be only one place. That's what 'home' means . 'Two homes' is like 'most unique.' Unique means one of a kind, nothing else like it. And just like something is either unique or it's not, someplace is either home or it's not. Telling me I had two homes just made me feel like I had no home at all.”
Stacy DeKeyser, Jump the Cracks

“A billboard announced JESUS IS LORD AT THE PINE TREE MOTEL.

"What, nowhere else?" I wondered out loud.”
Stacy DeKeyser, Jump the Cracks

“Because nobody but a reader ever became a writer.”
Richard Peck

“And sin, young man, is when you treat people like things.”
Terry Pratchett, Carpe Jugulum

“Them as can do has to do for them as can't. And someone has to speak up for them as has no voices.”
Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men
