Trust me. You shouldn’t be reading this.
The best writing advice comes from articles that are not about writing advice.
Ever read something and felt GREAT?
The sentences read like prose, meticulously polished and crafted perfectly to land softly yet make a hard impact.
That’s the article you should analyze for writing advice, not the one that offers writing advice.
The internet is full of people telling you what you should do. Heck, I am doing it right now.
The wisdom in writing shows you what to do, not how to do it.
Instead of reading another Medium article about waking up at 4:27 am and cranking out 10,000 words by 7:51 am, wake up at whatever time you wake up and write as much as you want until whenever you want to.
Try it. It’s better than going against biology, waking up at 4:27 am, and being miserable the rest of the day.
Show up and write. Try different things. Some will stick, but most won’t. And it shouldn’t. Otherwise, everyone would go around calling themselves writers.
But you will get better every time you write. I guarantee that.
Then look back in a couple of years, and you will see that the best writing advice you ever got was from a non-Writer.
