"What advice would you give to a new (fiction) writer?" That's the question Sky Sloderbeck asked some of our 2011 Mad Anthony Writers Conference presenters--here's what they had to say.
|"Recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Capitalize on your strengths. Critique heavily your weaknesses."
~ Hallie Ephron
|"Accept critique but only accept it from people you respect."
~ Sally Nemeth
|"Treat writing as a craft, not as a hobby."
~ Tracey Dils
~ Paula Munier
|"Perseverance is more important than talent."
~ Ed Davis
|"Read. Read. Read. ... in the genre you want to write."
~ Nancy Pinard
