every writer wants a Shakespeare in Love relationship
How to survive a relationship with a writer
all of these are like scary true
(but considering the horrendous choice in fonts, I have to wonder if the person who made this is really a writer)
"It’s wonderful to look back at our old writing and cringe. It simply means we have grown and can write better now. And you found some parts you can be proud of, so when you throw the old writing on the floor and stomp on it, remember to celebrate those seeds of genius and be glad that you’re still writing."
Jeanne Voelker (via writingquotes)
How big is your total wordcount?
I’ve heard from several authors and websites that many people really start getting good once they’ve reached one million words.
Take the wordcount of every story you’ve ever written and add it up. Does it fall short? There’s nothing wrong with that. You just haven’t lived long enough yet to reach a million at your own pace. Get writing.
Does it reach a million?
Then proclaim from the rooftops how awesome you are because you deserve it.
