We all know that Goodreads is a great place to find books and share them with fellow readers, but did you also know it’s an excellent resource for writers? If you’re interested in connecting with other writers, learning from authors, or creating your own author presence on the website, check out today’s Goodreads blog. You’ll find gems of advice like this:
Write something—anything—for 15 minutes a day
“Here is my advice: I get out my kitchen timer and set it for 15 mintues. I am not allowed to stand up until the 15 minutes are over. During that 15 minutes, I write something. Anything — a letter, a poem, a list of people you hate, a prayer, all my favorite words, a childhood memory, a dream. Something. I might even sit there for 15 minutes writing, “I don’t know what to write!” but I learned long ago that a “bad” day of writing is still a good day.”
-Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
