Writing tips

What are your tips? Here are some from other writers..

‘I find if I stop exactly at the point where I believe I know what is going to happen next in the story, then come back to this when I begin again either I feel confirmed with the direction or the story ‘tells me’ to change direction. usually this works!’ Christine Richard, OBE, FRSA; Author ‘Whitewalls’ and ‘Autumn at Whitewalls’ (recently published.

‘I’ve just re-read Stephen King’s ‘On Writing’. Not only is it a brilliant biography to read, occasionally laugh out loud, it’s a refreshing approach that cuts through all the rules and regulations that hem you in when you are simply trying to GET    IT    DOWN! Available from GOMA library or any other Glasgow library if you are a member. Probably out of print now.’  FWS Member  Lowri Potts

‘Don’t wait for inspiration, just keep writing however rubbishy it seems. Inspiration will arrive, trust me.’   For me this tip has never failed. Anne Clarke, FWS
