    Hey, y’all!

    I thought it might be fun for everyone to share some of the best writing advice you’ve ever heard or the advice that’s helped you the most.

    A really cool thing I heard is that if your story is boring, don’t speed up the pacing, slow down and add detail and character.

    Without darkness, there is no light. If there was no nighttime, would the stars be as bright?

    Hi @rose-colored-fancy

    One of the best writing tips I’ve found is to read broadly. One of the greatest helps for developing worlds, themes, and characters has been reading in all kinds of topics (theology, philosophy, ethics, history, economics, etc.) as well as reading fiction in broad genres.

    I remembered I read that tip about reading broadly in Wordsmithy: Hot Tips for the Writing Life by Douglas Wilson! 🙂
