Really great advice here. I think the only part I disagree with is about reading other writers. I think we should read other writers because we’ll learn what works, what doesn’t work, etc from sources outside ourselves. I get the jealousy thing, and that’s an issue all on it’s own. Every writer is different. But it’s those differences that will help all of us be better writers. Thank you for sharing, I’ve bookmarked this piece so I can revisit it!
