I use colours to difference different plot threads and characters while planning and then to criticise when editing.
Monthly reminder to WRITE!!
Remember the Holy Trinity: The Dictionary, The Thesaurus, and the Holy Internet.
Instagram is a great way of expressing yourself visually rather than in writing.
Love is the most important ingredient. Love of words. Of your characters and their flaws. Of truth. You are playing God, but it has to be a loving God.
Read your work aloud. You'll notice more mistakes that way.
The hardest bit of writing always comes at the 30,000 word mark. Keep going. After 50,000, the hill slopes in your favour.
