Finding Inspiration

The writer's lot is sometimes a hard, lonely, fun, tiring and fulfilling experience - not necessarily in that order and often felt at different points rather than all at once.

Learning the craft is a combination of honing skills through practise, studying the writing of others and reading for pleasure. Also, it might be a good idea to learn how to stand out rather than trying to blend in.

If there is anything that has been learnt thus far, it is that writing is a very personal journey requiring commitment, patience and the ruthless annihilation of the irrelevant.
One really must remove those adjectives - those ones which add absolutely nothing to the text as a whole or independently.

See that?

Well enough said. Am off to practise rather than preach...
