I like seeing I’m not alone when it comes to writing, whether its the battle with organic vs planned writing (status: unresolved), or just sharing someone else’s observations from the trenches. Unfortunately, the latter usually only comes from the more established writers, because the rest of us are too busy gawping to get anything accomplished. Justin’s nine tips, which are more observations and reminders, are a fresh voice on the subject.
When I finally decided to get serious about writing I scoured the interwebs and talked to as many real writers as possible for the best tricks of the trade. I knew that if I could gather as much advice as possible and build a system that was personalized just for me, I’d be successful.
As a point of clarification, I’m not a full-time writer and don’t really plan on becoming one. I have a very demanding full time job that I love, a lovely wife, and an adorable/hellish 4-month-old daughter. So if you’re reading this, you’re probably a lot like me. You want to write, maybe dream of launching a blog or completing a book, but you don’t have the liberty to write for a living – at least not yet.
