Resolutions for Writers - New & Old

It may still be the season to be jolly, but today starts the season to be serious. Here's the (printable) advice members of Hornsea Writers are embracing to help their own 2016 creative onslaughts. May some of it help your own:

Don't forget the basics. You'll never write anything if you don't get the words out - Penny Grubb

Learn the rules of your chosen language, but, once you've mastered them, allow imagination to lead your stories - Stuart Aken

Start as you mean to go on - Annie Wilkinson

Never throw out any writing you haven't found a home for. And read, read, read - Karen Wolfe 

Persevere, and have a target of completing one piece of writing each week: one article, one chapter, one short story - Madeleine McDonald

Defeat the distractions: housework, social media, inner critic, et al, to allow yourself to go with the creative flow - Linda Acaster

Never ever, ever, give up - April Taylor 

And smile - you're a writer!

~ Happy New Year ~
