Advice, originality and vampiresPosted: July 27, 2017
Today I’m at Aussie Owned, giving advice to my younger self about writing. Check it out!
You think I’d know better than to take the last post slot of the month when we’re doing an advice theme. By this point, dear reader, you’ve seen all sorts of excellent “what I wish I knew” advice posts — and my main messages to my younger self would be very similar to those already described:
- You can’t edit nothing; it doesn’t matter if your first draft is perfect so long as it exists
- Find like-minded souls (Twitter is excellent for this) because writing isn’t a one-person show
- Self-publishing is a viable option and not as scary as you think (although it does require work)
So I considered my main advice to younger reader me, and decided it would be “one format of books is not better than another — and, BTW, audiobooks are awesome so get onto that”. But I’ve blogged about the audiobook thing here too.
