Advice for Writers


“I tell my students that the odds of their getting published and of it bringing them financial security, peace of mind, and even joy are probably not that great. Ruin, hysteria, bad skin, unsightly tics, ugly financial problems, maybe; but probably not peace of mind. I tell them that I think they ought to write anyway.” 

 —Anne Lamott, writer, from Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, 1994.
