Inspirational words from Melanie:
Give it up and get on with it. Write endlessly. Write until your fingers fall off. Keep an archive somewhere to put all the stuff the world should never see and then post the bulk of the rest on your blog. (You DO have a blog, don’t you? All real writers have a blog…..) And for those gems – the occassional piece that just zings and sings and hits the mark – well those you send off to a publisher, magazine or agent.
I have a blog...!
