I have been writing for years now, and as I have delved deeper and deeper into this profession I have received more and more questions about how I do things and advice on what others should do. So, because I have nothing to do all day long (laugh, that is a joke. I am very busy.) I decided to start a blog and share some advice with other writers.
My hope is that something written here will help some poor writer out there. And a poor writer they would be if any advice I give helps them.
But a few ground rules first.
One – this is actually my second blog on this subject. The first was lost do to a tragic server relocation accident. (Oh, yea. And my failure to do any type of backup.) I am busier that I use to be, so please be patient as I rebuild this from scraps of memory dredged up from my old and only half functioning brain.
Two – Let me give you some definitions…
Advice: an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide to action, conduct, etc.
Opinion: a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty or a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.
I want you to understand the two above definitions as they pertain to what I am doing here. This blog contains my advice that should help you write better, but they are simply my opinions on how to do things.
Some of what I write here may help you. Other things you may disagree with. Still others that I write you may feel are totally wrong. That is fine. You are entitled to your opinions just as I.
As to what you take from this blog, that is up to you.
