I’ve noticed writers like to share. We have a huge community on twitter, and we tweet a lot. On my critique group, we email back and forth all the time. We blog, we comment on other people’s blogs and we give tips. Lots and lots of them.
Sometimes I feel like a bit of a fraud. Here I am, blogging about writing, and the craft of writing, and encouragement, and God knows what else crosses my mind. Here I am, giving all this advice and all these tips, and I haven’t even finished my own manuscript (or touched it in days, for that matter). So what do I know? Why should people be listening to me? And how are my tips any different from all the other tips out there in the cyber universe?
I have absolutely no idea. So, just for today, I’ll shut up and not give anyone any advice. I’ll just listen. Anything you want to share?
