I get a lot of email asking me for advice for writers. Which absolutely humbles me because I'm ALWAYS looking up advice for writers! I'm the most distracted, random author there is, I think, so I'm probably the last person you want to take advice from.
I always refer people to The Christian Writers Guild's site here. If you can afford the correspondence course, you will definitely see a huge improvement! Plus, you can get advice from people much more experienced in this field than me!
Also, one of my online writing buddies, C.J. Darlington (who just got a contract for her first novel - YAY!!), has done nearly 100 interviews of well-known authors asking them for their advice for novelists. You can find her blog here. Be sure to check out the synopsis for her novel - looks like it will be amazing!
My best advice? Stick with it. If God's given you the desire to write, then by all means, write! Remember that He who began this work in you is faithful to complete it. Which means you've got all you need! Read about writing, read people's advice about writing, and if you're brave enough, ask your favorite authors about writing. And if you're REALLY brave you can ask me - I promise I'll write you back as soon as I can, but you've got to promise not to laugh at my scattered ideas!
Our first anniversary is in FIVE days!! I can't believe it's been an entire year! :)
