Writing Tip #1

I've been doing a lot of reading about writing lately. I thought it might be fun to share some nuggets of wisdom that I'm gleaning from others.  To that end, I'll post a quote every week or so.

Here's the first quote:

"Writing every day is the key to becoming a writer. Writing every day is the key to remaining a writer. It is the only secret, the only trick. Don't despise the fifteen-minute write. Don't despise writing in your journal. Don't despise writing down your complaints for fifteen minutes before going to work. Any writing counts."
