Learn to Love your Characters.

To write a story, you must create characters. Whether they are villains based on people that have wronged you in your life or past loves.or even yourself, you must learn to love them, to know them intimately, in order to write them.

Based on the Book....

I think we all know what this means. How many times have you read a book, and was so impressed, went to see the movie? Never......and I mean NEVER expect the movie to be as good as the book.

Be Ruthless

“Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have ‘essential’ and ‘long overdue’ meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance.” 
~ J.K. Rowling ~
