A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.
Our imagination takes us to wild and crazy places, introduces us to new ideas, and creates people, conversations, and maybe even entire worlds. But getting those from daydreams to words on paper is sometimes a little more difficult. Cultivating a good habit of writing, reading well-written books, and letting trusted friends read your work and critique it are some of the easiest ways to learn and grow so that the stories in your head can someday be books in someone’s hands.
Question of the Day: What is your favorite piece of writing advice?
Small steps every day doesn’t feel very productive, or efficient, and certainly not very fun. But it adds up a lot quicker than taking a stab at it every now and then, or just one month out of the year. Daily commitment is hard, but it’s going to be worth it. Stick to your goals! We’re going to make 2018 count.
Question of the Day: What is your New Years resolution?

-M. L. Shanahan
