Good advice from Jodi Picoult

“Carve out a bit of time every day to write, and make sure you do it – and nothing but that – even when you don’t feel very motivated. Read a ton. Take a workshop course so you learn to give and get criticism. When you’re stuck, and sure you’ve written absolutely garbage, force yourself to finish and THEN decide to fix or scrap it – or you will never know if you can.”

Good advice from Jodi on writing. Need to take that workshop and need to learn how to carry garbage to the finish and then fix it…instead of not fixing it and simply putting it up on the blog. 🙂

  1. Excellent advice from that most prolific of writers. The key thing is not just to enrol for the Workshop and then receive the criticism but to first recognise and admit that one has written "absolute garbage". I am still at the stage before that. 😦
