#WIPJoy Day 7: Share advice that helped you as a writer.
“If you want for inspiration, you are not a writer, you are a waiter.” ~ Dan Poyner
“Don't use adjectives which merely tell us how you want us to feel about the thing you are describing. I mean, instead of telling us a think was terrible, describe it so that we'll be terrified. Don't say it was delightful; make us say delightful when we've read the description." ~ C. S. Lewis
“Poetry is an echo asking a shadow to dance.” Carl Sandbing
“VERY IMPORTANT! Resist the urge to tell your friends and family what you are writing about." ~ Andy Weir - The Martion
"Assume 70% of everything anyone writes is bad. Then try to refine the 30% that's good." ~ Stephen Dubner
