Everyone has an opinion. Especially writers. We’ve been around enough writers to know that we all have a different approach when it comes to getting a story out. Some like to start at the end, ‘having dessert’ before the main course, (writing your ending before you begin). Some outline. Some would rather cut off their fingers than use an adverb. Advice is abundant, even advice in craft books, but the point, the challenge in taking in all this advice, good and bad, is sorting out which is the best for you.
This week we discuss the best or worst writing advice we’ve received and we want to hear yours as well, LitStackers. Some advice hinders, some teaches you. The trick is taking that advice and applying it to your work…finding the golden nuggets among the filth and making it work.
