Is it good advice or bad? How do you tell? How do you sift the useful words of wisdom from the superficial soundbite?
Hornsea Writers’ Penny Grubb has been looking at some of the advice doled out by writers for writers and unpacking it to see what lies behind the soundbite.
She discusses what led her to do this HERE, and is at once pitched into wondering if she’s missed something herself.
Continuing the quest she finds things to say about people’s different perceptions of novels, along with some hints on why and how. But in amongst the gold dust and garbage, she finds that some advice is simply no use to anyone until they know enough not to need it.
