Blog Tour: The Book Addicted Girl

Meg very kindly allowed me to drop by her blog in the course of my blog tour. She asked for my Top 10 Writing Tips, as part of her Book Addicted Boys feature, and if you follow that link you will learn what they are.

Here’s #4, “Don’t be afraid to make mistakes”:

“Nobody’s perfect first time. Or second time. Or the third. (Repeat until the page is full.) It’s okay to be imperfect – in fact it’s good, because who knows what “perfect” is anyway? You have to miss a thousand goals before you make the perfect shot in a final. You’ll probably have to get caught a few times before you make off with the Mona Lisa, too. (Tip: don’t steal.) It’s the same with writing. Making mistakes proves you’re learning.”
