Journalist by day; writer by night.
"Sit down every day and DO IT. Writing is a self-taught craft; the more you work at it, the more skilled you become. And when you're not writing, READ." --Lois Duncan
Yeah, sitting to write everyday is important. I'm about to unplug and start writing.
Great reminder! Something I need to do...
Write very day, I agree!! The piece I'm probably most proud of is my 3rd book BREATH OF LIFE, that's really special to me.
how true! I actually do this now, that is, write nearly every day. And I always have a book - sometimes two - going. Thanks, Buffy!
Lois Duncan!!! -- awesome quote, and so true! It is "self-taught." I recently had to sit through a day-long inservice by the representative of a writing curriculum publisher. She was an energetic presenter, and she shared great strategies for teaching individual writing skills. But the whole time, I kept thinking, "These skills, taught individually, cannot make great writers. It takes a talent to put them all together." And that can only be learned from within.
