Writing Tip 18:

What kind of writer are you? Do you write a little each day? Or do you write all day long once a week?  Or do you take a month and go to a cabin and write there? Whatever your style when you write, remember to stay connected and conscious. Your work (if writing is not your full time job) must continue, and you must continue to stay in touch with your friends and family. Create a positive writer myth about you.

 Writing Tip 18:

Pick a summer from early in your life and write about it.
