Sage Advice from Harper Lee

Never mind the hide, for starters don’t use idioms like “sage advice.”

I would advise anyone who aspires to a writing career, that before developing his talent he would be wise to develop a thick hide — Harper Lee.

Pulled this from an article on Writer’s Digest, where Allen Drury also said “set a schedule and stick to it.”  In other words, stop searching for “writing advice” on Google and get writing (actually, I love reading writer’s advice on writing – it’s an addiction)!

    Hey, It’s great for me being here, I want to be a writer and need to attend a creative writing course to be surrounded with writers’ world but right now I can’t do that, so just wanted to thank you for gathering this stuff.

    I would love it, if you could take a look at my little writings: http://queerdomtale.wordpress.com/
