What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

1. Carry a notebook around (or just use the notes app on your phone) to write things down whenever a piece of inspiration hits you or whenever you just feel like writing

2. If something happens to you in your day to day life that seems like it would make a good story, write it down, at the very least it can make a good warm up piece and at the most it could potentially be inspiration for an entire novel

3. I just mentioned warm up pieces and they’re super important, like, they’re not necessary, if you just want to jump right into your piece then go for it, but warm up pieces can be fun and useful and might end up being something you can redraft later as a standalone piece or a segment of a bigger work

4. Speaking of redrafting, don’t be afraid to do that- it’s absolutely fine if your first draft isn’t perfect, that’s why it’s called a first draft

5. Even if you have writer’s block and can’t write what you want to write, write something- anything at all, it doesn’t have to be creative in any way, you can just write a literal description of a nearby table

6. Because it’s crucial to just keep writing- imagine all the stories that never get told because they just cycle around somebody’s mind and never put onto paper. As I said, any writing at all can help, even if you’re just writing an ABCB poem about a cushion, something about it could create a stroke of inspiration for your novel and propel you out of the block

7. It can help to talk to other writers, set each other writing challenges and make requests, share your ideas, and collaborate BUT

8. It’s absolutely fine if you can’t do that or don’t want to do that, it’s important to remember that not every piece of advice works for everybody and if your writing is private or if talking to people is difficult/impossible for you at any given moment that’s totally okay

9. Make backups and copies. There’s nothing worse than losing something you’ve been working on and it not feeling the same when you start over

10. Stop calling yourself an aspiring writer and just call yourself a writer, if you’re writing, you’re a writer, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been paid or published, you’re doing it so you’re doing it~
