I recently came across an image on Pinterest that had me sit up and take notice. It was a collection of quotes and advice for writers. The ideas were simple, but the effect overall was huge. We sometimes forget as writers, how important it is to be what we are. We lose ourselves in the process and forget the point. Sometimes, we even forget to write. Here is a selection of the 20 tips that form a writer’s manifesto:
time to write every day
your heart, not the market
just start stories, finish them
the rules, follow the rules, break the rules
accept and manage constructive criticism
you are the master, not the slave
be lazy: outline, research, rewrite
a life that supports your writing
what you do
why you started
Simple, see? Nothing on that list is earth-shattering, and yet they are all vital to leading a life with writing that works. There is nothing worse than a writer who doesn’t write. Someone who forgets their dreams is someone that is unfulfilled. Embrace your dreams, write big, and remember to keep it simple.
