Writing Advice from novelist Christie Watson

"...I think my biggest piece of advice for anyone who wants to write is to turn off that voice in your head that says you can't do it, that it's no good, that you're no good, that no-one will ever read it, because that voice never goes. And you can have the most success as a novelist and you'll still hear that voice. And I think a lot of writing is overcoming that voice in your head that tells you you can't do it. So, find a way to silence that voice, and sit down, and write."

- Christie Watson, author of "Where Women Are Kings," from her podcast interview with Nicole Nelson on "Writers on Writing," 40:00 minutes in.
