Posts Tagged ‘Margaret Atwood’

This week, unsurprisingly, I completely failed to read a book. I also failed to think of a single quote to use for the blog.

But I didn’t want to leave you with nothing, so I looked up one of my favourite authors – Margaret Atwood – to find some generally interesting quotes. Here’s the first one I stumbled upon, on Goodreads; it’s not a quote as such, just some really good advice:

My first advice would be: don’t listen to any advice before you start writing. Just start. If you listen to too much advice you will get overwhelmed. Once you start, you will find out what you need to know next.

But read. And write a little every day.

So there you go – writing, habit, and reading all combined in one simple piece of advice.  It’s what I’ve said for 180 – odd weeks and Margaret Atwood clarified it in two sentences.

Perhaps I need an editor…

Happy reading,
