So You Want to Write a Novel

Possibly everyone in the world has seen this clip already but it’s so full of home truths about writing that I couldn’t resist it. To write well you have to read widely. Good writing takes time, thought, skill and energy. But I don’t think ‘now’ is a terrible or impossible time to be published. The publishing world is changing but there is always a place for new voices and good quality writing.
