Demian Farnworth at Copyblogger offers some stellar advice for writers based on his lengthy experience in 12 Lessons Learned from 12 Years of Writing. As I’m gearing up for my next book (announcement to follow soon!), these were welcomed tips. Here are his first six recommendations:

  • Lesson 2: Beg a hot-shot writer to mentor you
  • Lesson 3: Cultivate a sick sense of humor
  • Lesson 4: Steal ideas
  • Lesson 5: Writer’s block is a myth
  • Lesson 6: Read like mad
