In the Life of An Agent: How to Be a Writer, Told in Poetry Edition

Write ye who dream to write

of words and stories

sit your arse in that chair

write ye who dream to write

set your clock by sun or moonlight

write ye who dream to write


Starting to get it? You know how to be a writer?


WRITE


Everyday.


STUDY


Your craft.


HONE


Your writing by reading...


....in the genre you wish to write.


TREAD CAREFULLY


Where you find your information...


...the advice of published authors often outweighs


....the advice of unpublished authors.


KEEP WRITING


That's it.


Just do it.


THE END
