A few things you won’t learn on that creative writing course
Of all the emails I receive each week, a small but growing number are from new writers – often young, and sometimes a bit bewildered, seeking advice on writing. They don’t know where to find ideas, or they don’t know how to start, or they’re scared that the rapid pace of change in our world will obsolete the book before they can write theirs.
While I try to reply to each of these messages, I thought it was time to write down some of the things I’ve learned over the years. I hope this helps.
