What are two of the most important writing tips you think authors should know?
Writing a novel is hard work and it requires carving out time to just sit and write. Then after you write, you have to rewrite. And rewrite again. And again. Writing takes time and discipline so just determine up front you're going to make the time and effort.
Great reminders, Rachel. It's so easy to think once we have words on a page we're finished, but rewriting is really at the heart of the writing process.
