“Nobody’s a natural. You work hard to get good and then work to get better. It’s hard to stay on top.”
– Paul Coffey
I thought this quote is true of anything you do in life but especially relevant to being an author.
Becoming a good writer and getting published takes time. (Even if you’ve got natural talent). Treat each day as a new learning experience and a way to become a better writer. It’s all too easy to think, I’m published so I have nothing more to learn. You do and you can be even better than you are today. Read more writing how to’s, take classes, and practice writing every day.
