I’ve read a ton of writing advice all over the internet and from books, and the two things that stuck with me are these:
- Write every day: No matter how ridiculous the things you put on paper seem to you, write something down. Doing this makes sure that a flow continues, whether it is good material or bad, it is something. You can always fix bad writing, but you cannot fix a blank page. Free writing often helps when nothing comes to mind.
- Quantity produces Quality: The more you write, the better you get at it. This idea can be put to use in many fields and writing is definitely one of them. If you keep writing every day, the amount and quality of writing will significantly increase.
