Exercise #523

Exercise #523: Craft
Posted  6/7/13

Today’s exercise comes from B Paul. A recent Writer's interview featured the question to an author, “What was the worst advice you ever got?” The answer given was the old  saw we hear from all corners. “Write something every day.” The author elaborated, and it made sense for her writing style.

So . . . What’s the worst writing advice you ever got? If you tried it and it failed for you, tell us why. If you haven’t tried it, why do you think it’s the worst advice?

Critiquers, along with the usual grammar, spelling, etc, review, consider these questions:
     * Could you relate to this piece? Why or why not?
     * Was this piece helpful to you as a writer? Why or why not?
