"If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot." - Stephen King
The craft of writing is not an easy one. You need to be able to create characters, construct a plot, and do all this while trying to capture and hold the interest of a reader.
Whether you're writing a blog or trying to come up with the next bestselling novel, there are a lot of hurdles to overcome before getting the words on the page the way you want them. Writer's Block, lack of time or focus, and all kinds of other obstacles face a writer every day.
For those of you out there that would like to get some good tips on writing, I personally love Stephen King's book On Writing - which is part memoir of his life and part amazing instructions for being a writer.
We also have a lot of other great books for aspiring writers out there. So whether you're trying to write a novel, craft a memoir, or write a blog - get writing!
