About Writing

Lesson #1 - Life is full of interesting things and it's easy for a writer to get sidetracked.. 
Lesson #2 - Begin at the beginning and write that first draft - even if you know it's crap. Get the story down and then you'll have something to edit.
Lesson #3 - Read a lot of books and learn something
from all of them - even the ones you don't like. Especially the ones you don't like because then you'll know what not to do.
Lesson #4 - Write something every day. The more you write, the more you'll learn and the better you'll be.
