In my surfing-for-knowledge/insight/fun/brilliance!! regarding writer's craft this week, I came across an article by Jocelyn Glei in the blog 99U : Insights on Making Ideas Happen, from Behance.
There are twenty-five tips on how to become a better writer/get the work done from well-known writers here, including the likes of P.D. James, Zadie Smith, Kurt Vonnegut, Jennifer Egan, Haruki Murakami, Annie Dillard and others of equal stature.
One of my favorites, from Esther Freud, on finding time to write: "Find your best time of day for writing, and write. Don't let anything else interfere. Afterwards it won't matter to you that the kitchen is a mess."
One hint: unless you love Ernest Hemingway, you can skip the opening quote. If you do love Hemingway, you'll smile, maybe laugh. I suspect the irony in his statement was only for literary effect. I think he actually meant it!! :)
