Who are the three authors born this week who gave the following advice to would-be authors?
“Keep going. Writing is finally play and there is no reason you should get paid for playing. If you’re a real writer, you’ll write no matter what.”
"It comes down to what I call "suit up and show up." ... A lot of writing is simply showing up and doing the work day after day."
Answer to Last Week’s Question: One of the writers above said “Your audience is one single reader. I have found that sometimes it helps to pick out one single person – a real person you know, or an imagined person and write to that one.”
