The Best Advice
The BEST ADVICE:
I'm going to make my blog short today but I have a question for everyone.
"What is the best advice anyone ever gave you? Authors what is the best writing advice anyone ever gave to you? Do you follow advice when it's given ?
Do you read advice columns? Personally I miss Erma Bombeck she had a sense of humor about almost any situation.
What bad advice were you given?
The best writing advice was from my late writing mentor Monette Cummings she said
"Plant butt to chair and don't get up until you've written something and even if you toss it out the next day."
My grandmother used to say "You can waste the day thinking about what you want to do today or you can just do it." This was long before the Nike Commericals or Just Say No day and age.
Another piece of advice came from my daughter years ago she said...when I complained one day...
"The way I look at it mom you're going to die anyway so you might as well write the book."
Okay it's your turn except I will say I can't pick from the bad advice I've gotten over the years from well meaning people. I will comment that not every advice is tailor made to fit but I do give advice with the best of intentions. LOL
