Read. Read. Read.
(Literally every author/writer says this. And it’s true.)
Protect your writing
time and space. Make it sacred.
Keep a notebook on hand
(could be the sticky notes on your phone, which is where I keep all my notes
for when I think of future ideas, quotes, characters, etc.)
Read it out loud to
yourself. (This is actually true for ANY type of writing. It just helps you hear
the “flow” and if anything sounds awkward)
main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence,
you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as
for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it
needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not
sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.” — Neil Gaiman
