I’m starting to think that reading about other writers and ‘how to’ articles just saps the writing impulse.

Stop reading about writing.

Read.

Write.

Read more.

Write more.

If you’re good, you’ll know. You’ll sell.

If you’re not good, find a class, a teacher, a mentor, because just trying to do it on your own isn’t working.

But stop reading so many goddamned interviews with writers who’re big today, will be gone five years from now.
