A.L. ’s Top Tips:

  • I think it’s important not to think of your own writing as a chore. Once you end up “doing it for money” you can find the fun drops out of the whole thing and it’s important to keep it around – with music playing in the background or good snacks or research trips or whatever keeps it fresh.
