Contest Tuesday - Book Giveaway

One thing I love about writing is other writers. Since I've started this journey to publication, I am amazed at the willingness of others to share their experience and knowledge with less experienced writers.

Todays contest is simple. Simply leave a comment telling what the best writing advice or tip is that you have received. You must be a follower to be eligible.

The prize? I'll send a copy of Always Watching by Brandilyn & Amberly Collins. It's a great read filled with suspense. Brandily Collins is known for her trademark "Seatbelt Suspense."
Always Watching (Rayne Tour, The)

I'll announce the winner on Saturday....good luck!


  1. Hm, good question! I think the best advice I ever got was "have a take and don't suck." Basically, the rule to having a bestseller is to have an original and unique take on an idea-- and then write it without suckage!

    It makes me laugh-- and it's true! :)

    Thanks for hosting the contest.

  2. Best advice?

    'When I want to read a good novel, I write one'~ Benjamin Disraeli

    That one's just stuck with me.
    Like the contest XD

  3. Write it and set it aside. Then come back and look at it with new eyes.


  4. I've gotten a lot of good advice, but the one thing I always come back to that I definitely don't have the knack of doing yet is "write the scene and move on...don't get bogged down rewriting it over and over again." There's always time for revisions later, and chances are, you'll change it anyway! Now, if only I could listen to that advice...

  5. Thanks to everyone who left a comment and good luck in the drawing!
