Tips for Aspiring Writers:
Quit quitting. It gets old, quick. I’ve put my writing on hiatus in the past. My longest hiatus was a year. Usually, fear, doubt, and lack of sleep keep me from doing the work.
Anyway, just keep going. Create all the literary scat you can (just edit it afterward).
Because, art is meant to be shared, not hoarded.
Don’t be a literary equivalent of a dung beetle!
Any advice for friends/family/pets of a writer?
Don’t judge your writer too harshly. Yes, they are introverted. They aren’t avoiding you, or your social events. They just have work to do. And, they want you to love them, just as much as they care about you.
Because, what writers have a lot to deal with such as critics, low energy, and probably lonely bouts of writing sessions.
