Gosh, I really do need to start blogging more. It was one of my New Year resolutions but it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe it can be an early-mid April resolution instead, even if they’re just short blog posts with interesting links.
Anyway, here’s today’s interesting post for any would-be writers out there. There are a million books on how to write (or so it often seems) but I love the fact that John Steinbeck, winner of countless awards including the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes, conveyed his advice in to six simple points. The last I think is one of the most important – a lot of the books we see, whether self-published or from big name authors, feel lumpy and often it’s when you read the dialogue out loud that you realise the problem.
See you soon. Promise.
