WRITE EVERY DAY
even if just five minutes a day, write every day.page a day is a novel a year. a thousand words a day is a two " war and peace" a year.remember picasso said " inspiration exist, but it has to find you working". remember hemingway as well, "first drafts are shit , however necessary shit "
FIND A READER
find a constructive reader for your shit, someone who is not releted to you , who will tell you the truth, and nothing by the truth.try to avoid punching him when he delivers bad news.
BE A RUTHLESS EDITOR
particulary when you comes to the bits you like the most .slash and burn.cut- thingie may be the most creative bit of work in whole process of writing.
WRITE WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
making stuff up is a major part of writer's job.do not invent hot water, it's already invented.
ni manje ni vise.
