Ten Tips and Tricks for Writers, Seasoned and Not


E. W. Farnsworth


  1. Write something for publication every day.
  2. Throw none of your writing ideas away.
  3. Write about what you know intimately, especially in fiction.
  4. Let your style evolve through writing regularly.
  5. Don’t worry about length; let the subject lead you.
  6. Structure (or story) should be your guide, not a written outline.
  7. Imitate no one but yourself; if you do that, you won’t have to worry about copyright issues.
  8. Don’t worry about writer’s block; if you get some distance, your ideas will flow naturally.
  9. Have a novel in process continually.
  10. Learn how to brainstorm; you will never lack for material if you do.
