Eight Secrets Writers Won’t Tell You

I’m doing the lazy thing today,

koala-bear-9960_1280because I want to tell you about someone else’s page.

It’s by Ali Luke. When I read it, I had a big Aha! moment.

Because it has a wonderful summary of all the things I want to tell you about writing:

Writing is hard;

it’s personal;

we procrastinate;

the first draft is awful;

a piece is never finished;

we do it because we can’t stop;

we would like to make some money by writing;

we suffer from doubt.

Ali’s page is comprehensive and straightforward and pithy and also so

just plain right.

Read it now. (Sorry, it’s a bit slow to load.)

Eight Secrets Which Writers Won’t Tell You

Even if you ignore everything else I’ve told you …

even if you ignore all my future posts …

read the Eight Secrets page.

In fact, Aliventures is a fantastic blog altogether. If you haven’t found it yet …

well now you have !


That’s it. Short post. Ali did all the work today.

Thanks to these people for the images.
