Sometimes life helps you out by providing some much needed advice – whether you realise you need it or not.
25 Things Writers Should Stop Doing is a great article I came across that basically knocked all the sense into me that I could ever need (with a few swear words along the way).
I highly recommend you check it out.
I read this cool article last week — “30 Things To Stop Doing To Yourself” — and I thought, hey, heeeey, that’s interesting. Writers might could use their own version of that. So, I started to cobble one together. And, of course, as most of these writing-related posts become, it ended up that for the most part I’m sitting here in the blog yelling at myself first and foremost.
That is, then, how you should read this: me, yelling at me. If you take away something from it, though?
Then go forth and kick your writing year in the teeth.
Onto the list.
