What ONE thing would you give up to become a better writer?
This could be ANYTHING, like a pledge for Lent or a sacrifice to the Writing Gods or a resolution to cutting back on nasty habits that hinder your work. Time to confess.
Many of you have been writing for a long while, been traditionally published through big and/or boutique houses, or self-published. All of these struggles have brought knowledge gained through experience.
For discussion – What advice would you give your younger writing self when you were first starting out? Knowing what you do now, please give your top 3 tips.
Name a book & author that changed something in you:
1.) By broadening your perspective
2.) By exposing you to different ideas
3.) Or by introducing you to new parts of the world or cultures
Some books that touched me this way are:
White Oleander by Janet Fitch
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
