Writing Advice

Here (via here). The last link takes you to Jo van Every’s advice blog, where she has been running a series on writing.

The point with these – as said before – is not that the same thing works for everyone, but that so many people seem stuck in habits that do not work well for them, that there is a benefit in hearing more about how others do it.

    Thanks for all these links Stuart, and again, more thanks for talking about your own work habits in your interviews. It has long been a project of mine to accumulate writing and reading “habits” (much like Simon Critchley has collected death stories) on the people I admire. I have a whole database on them that I should turn into a book one day. Personally, my writing “problem” is a vicious cycle where I don’t feel like my words quite capture the way I had an idea worked out in my head, which turns into an anxiety in writing. I also have the bad habit of reading the paper or my novel first in the morning, thinking that I will have “plenty of time later on,” and then get so caffeinated that writing turns more into a confusing, rather than productive, exercise!
