« I Think I'm Doing It Wrong | Main | Road Kill »


The most useful piece of advice I ever got was from my boss, when I was working as a lobbyist: "You need to think less about what you want to say, and more about what you want the other person to hear."

"Be interesting."

You decide if that was writerly or non-writerly advice.

Write every day.

Or as Nora Roberts said: I can fix a bad page, but I can't fix a blank page.

Be interested to hear what advice other FOFO's take to heart :)

"The successful writer is the writer too stupid to quit."

OK, not so much advice as an aphorism.

Keep on truckin'

Don't quit your day job.

Don't plug a cigarette lighter into your USB port.

"Giant robots."

You're welcome.

I think I should just shut up and listen to Mr. Fleming! ;-)
