Writing Advice from Laini Taylor (via Publishers Weekly's BookLife)

New York Times and USA Today-bestselling author and National Book Award Finalist, Laini Taylor shares some excellent writing advice over at BookLife, including:

Never sit staring at a blank page or screen. If you find yourself stuck, write. Write about the scene you’re trying to write. Writing about is easier than writing, and chances are, it will give you your way in. You could try listing 10 things that might happen next, or do a timed freewrite—fast, non-precious forward momentum; you don’t even have to read it afterward, but it might give you ideas. Try anything and everything. Never fall still, and don’t be lazy.

Illustrate and Write On,
