How to Write about Arguing with Your Girlfriend and so on...  Reply with quote  

I agree with nearly everything this guy says about writing, so why not just let you read what he has to say? Because I am tired and he obviously was avoiding writing to write this little primer, while I was avoiding writing by reading his site.


Here's the very funny Mil Millington's page on writing:

Sounds like good advice. I could add one more.

Play in a band. It helps.

When my book came out, it got more attention because I was a musician who wrote a book. That gave me more press for my band. Then I would use the press the band was receiving to plug the book every chance I got. Now I sell as many books at our gigs as we do CD's. And I don't have to split the book money.
