small sampling of the advice you'll find in this guide from successful published writers:
"The most important thing
I ever learned about writing is this: you don't have to have an idea big
enough to fill a book in order to start planning a book. All it takes is
a tiny nugget of an idea. Often a "what if?". What if there really
was a perfume that made a woman irresistible? What if a body got tossed
up in someone's garden by an earthquake? What you have to do is prod and
poke this nugget, ask it questions, research its components, play with
it, and give it time to generate more ideas."
- Margaret Chittenden
Published writer of over
100 short stories and articles, three children's books, and 30 novels
"I read my dialogue out
loud to make it believable."
- Madeline Baker
Published author of 36 books
and 7 novellas
"Set reachable goals--finishing
the next chapter, the first draft, the first agent's letter--and reward
yourself for achieving them. This will help maintain your momentum, and
reinforce a sense of ongoing progress."
- T. Davis Bunn
Best-selling author of 14
"I once sent a query to
a magazine that accepted queries and completed articles from writers. They
rejected my query, but I still believed in the match. So, a year later,
I wrote the article and sent it to the same magazine. Published!"

Managing editor of a publishing
company and published writer of over 1,000 articles
