Advice from a New Writer to New Writers:
Take all the advice you can get- you don’t have to use it all but at least give it a try.
Over the past few weeks I have found so many helpful blogs full of really useful info and advice.
It’s an online world we have stepped into and it can be pretty daunting. You not only have to write the thing, you have to learn a whole load of new skills, you have to market it and learn a new way of working and a new language.
There are people out there who can help so don’t be afraid to ask. I have found that these guys are usually really happy to share their knowledge with you.
Learning from people who have been through the same experience and come out smiling just has to be a good thing.
The info and experience you seek is out there you just have to scoot around and look for it.
Us newbies we are all on a steep learning curve, it’s scary but it’s also fun. We are probably among the first generation of writers to have access to self publishing. We have huge resources to call on and we don’t have to paper our walls with rejection letters if we don’t want to. Sure it’s an up and down ride sometimes but let’s enjoy it and hang on screaming right to the end.
Tonight’s Jonny Greeneyes-snips
Well pull me up then you idiot I heard him say.
Marc a bit unsteady heaved my father upright, he made a face
Ooh I think you fell in badger shit Jonny
Dad sniffed, oh yeah it is a bit rank or is it just one of your giant mega farts, they both collapsed into giggles again like a couple of kids.
In 36 years I had never seen them this gone, they were both steaming!
He squeezed the Pixies hand, don’t worry he said, Gala is only doing it to wind you up, anyway credit me with having better taste than that over-inflated puffball.
His own father said he was like whipped cream, pretty and tempting to look at, but full of air, with no real substance and liable to collapse under the slightest pressure!
Tony grunted, yeah well I will be a much happier Pixie when that one is off, and on his way to wherever it is he comes from. I don’t trust him an inch!
