Three Authors Offer Advice for Writers

Q. What advice do you give aspiring writers?


’1. Call yourself a writer when people ask what you do (it’s important)

2. Find time to write every day.

These are both far, far harder than you think they are, but they’re the most important things you’ll do.

Fear and panic in the air
I want to be free
From desolation and despair
And I feel like everything I sew
Is being swept away
When I refuse to let you go

(Lyrics by Muse)’

“Live curiously. Make the whole world your muse. Never let yourself get bored—instead: eavesdrop, ask questions, try to learn as much as you can about as many things and as many people as you can.

If you live your whole life like a curious person, you’ll never be at a loss for things to write about.”

“If the thought of doing anything else can make you happy, do that. Writing is a difficult career. In fact it’s more an affliction or an addiction than a job. If you read this, know the odds are against you and you don’t care – you’ve got to write anyway, then the chances are that you’re a writer.”
