What’s the best writing advice you’ve received?

Do the work. Don’t worry if it’s “good” or not. Don’t worry if people will like it or not. As the great shoe giant Nike says in perpetuity, “Just do it.” And while that may be a dubious mantra in general, it works perfectly in this context.

Reading

As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. Impending death! Multiple first person narrators! A surprising amount of snark! 

And Cash like sawing the long hot sad yellow days up into planks and nailing them to something.

LaineyGossip's weekly podcast Show Your Work. The one I look forward to. The one that makes me laugh out loud. The one that makes me want to start intelligent debate about the ramifications of the Brange divorce and subsequent press coverage.
