Ann Harleman (goodreadscomann_harleman) WRITING TIPS abound in Meg Files’s WRITING WHAT YOU KNOW, just out in a second edition. Meg’s astute and down-to-earth approach is like long, luxurious discussions with a good writer friend.
A terrific book!

Ann Harleman (goodreadscomann_harleman) Can the art of writing ✍️ make us better at the art 🖼 of living?
My essay in the editors’ choice issue of Womenartsquarterly Journal, “Letter to a Young Writer,” explores this question. Eight well-known writing principles as I’ve tried (with varying degrees of success and/or pleasure) to LIVE them.
A memoir in self-help clothing 🐑!

Sasha Lane (sashalaneauthor) | 5 comments Some good advice I have been given is to look at your average review score, not individual reviews. Every author will get a bad review - it’s your overall review score that matters x

Dawn Hill Publications (dawnhillpub) | 2 comments Our Writing Advice:

-Be confident in yourself! Put your work out there and get feedback! That's the best way to improve your work.

-Organise yourself. When you're writing, your focus is writing and writing only. Structuring your writing does help for most authors, helps them be more productive during writing sessions.

Leon Stevens (leon_stevens) | 4 comments I agree with Sasha and Dawn Hill. I started to blog more and to write a few articles on various sites. It helps to get out of the comfort zone. I've gone a while without writing and then I sat down with a blog topic and wrote for a half hour (maybe more). It was fun too!
