A quick post today, I’ve just finished reading Stacked’s fortnightly, always brilliant, Links of Note post and read something I knew I had to share on my own blog.
Writing is something I spend a lot of time thinking about, talking about and doing. This post of Tips For Writers from The Belle Jar is pretty wonderful, lovely words of encouragement and support such as:
Write because you have a secret fire burning inside of you and the only way that you can fan the flames is by sharing your thoughts with someone else.
Write because you’re bored and don’t have anything better to do.
Write for yourself.
Write for other someone else, or maybe everyone else.
You’ll have to go and read the post for the rest of the brilliance, it’s worth it. And then get writing!
