My Seven Secrets of Writing


    I was tagged by Author Mel Bynum to share 7 secrets of writing. Right now, I am working on book #11, and with each one I learn something new. Here are my seven:

    1. Learn everything you can about the publishing industry BEFORE you put your book out there. There's a lot to know......

    2. Find your best writing time and place. Make the most of those two, because they are when and where you are most productive.

    3. If you want to be published, look at your writing as a JOB, not just a hobby.

    4. Understand that there are some do's and don'ts to writing, but some of them can be broken once you learn what you're doing.

    5. Never think your writing is golden. Everyone can improve and everyone needs an editor.

    6. Keep a notebook or a handheld recorder in your purse at all time. You never know when you'll get an idea, and if you don't capture it at that moment, it will be lost forever.

    7. Help someone else along the way. As you sow, so shall you reap.
