Happy 50th!

So, yesterday I passed the 50 post mark. I’ve had this blog since April 2011, and I feel blessed that it’s still going!

Things that have happened since April 2011:

  1. I graduated from high school and started college.
  2. I wrote another novel.
  3. I spent the whole summer working at a camp.
  4. I left a record 153 comments on 19 pages of prose.
  5. That’s all I can think of.

To celebrate, I’ll leave you with a bit of writing advice, lightening-style.

  • Research is not writing.
  • Writing about writing is not writing (unless that’s your job!)
  • Give your characters strange combinations of mental disorders, take away the meds, and watch what happens.
  • Adverbs and passive voice are evil.

If you could condense the best writing advice every into one sentence or less, what would it be?

    “Give your characters strange combinations of mental disorders, take away the meds, and watch what happens.” – Best advice ever. 🙂

    Best writing advice is either….

    1. First drafts are always rough.

    2. Write honestly.
