Hello there, writerly friends~ ♥︎
I have been running this advice blog for a long while now, and although I’ve answered tons of questions and made tons of resources for writers, I think that there is something very important that I have not really touched on… and that is that every writer, regardless of experience or age, has the ability to inspire others.
I mean it.
Writing is such a fluid medium— every writer can find their own way to tell stories. This is the freedom of writing. That is why I want to give my fellow writerly friends (that’s you!) a chance to voice their thoughts and advice, so that countless others can be inspired :D
How can we go about doing this? Take a few minutes, and consider the following question:
What is the one piece of advice you wish you would’ve known when you first got started writing?
And then write down your answer! You can reply to this post, reblog it with your thoughts, or you can drop it on my askbox!
Over the next couple of days I will gather the advice and I will make an awesome post (sourcing each of you correctly and linking back to your blogs, of course) and I will post it here for everyone to see! Imagine this as a nexus— a fountain of inspiration, if you may, and a clear reminder that each and every one of you can inspire others to write!
Let’s make something awesome, together~ ♥︎
for me, the best piece of advice was a quote given to me by a writing teacher :
"There is no such thing as an ‘aspiring writer’. You are a writer. Period."
