Three tips from a writer

Our friend, who used to be a copywriter in advertising, came to stay. A gentle soul with a gift for telling funny, engaging anecdotes, he gave me three tips about writing:

  • It’s less about writing, more about re-writing. Editing is hugely important.
  • When you’re stuck, just get anything down on paper. Just write.
  • Your employers aren’t your friends or family. You’re an orphan.

That last might sound a bit dramatic, and it’s not specifically about writing, but it’s a good point. And also quite inspiring. No parents means you get to let loose your mischievous, playful side and can concentrate on creativity, not pleasing the boss.
