This is Why I Read Writer's Digest

| | Comments (0)

For those who don't know, Writer's Digest is a bi-monthly magazine that features great articles about writing. They just celebrated their 90th year last year.

While I was browsing their site, I came across an interesting article: http://www.writersdigest.com/article/The_10_Commandments_of_Fiction_Writing/

In a nutshell, the article states that even though every writer is different, there are just certain rules that you HAVE TO FOLLOW. Like me, you might have already seen most of what's on the list. One of the most important rules to remember though is #8-Develop thick skin. Think about it, besides you there are thousands upon thousands of people who are trying to get their work published. With so many people to go through, sooner or later you're going to get rejected. You shouldn't feel discouraged though. In fact, it should prompt you to work harder.
