Keep it concise.
A kind follower reminded me of that '7 Cardinal Rules of Life' post going around, and they asked me if I would ever do my take on them (that being, a writerly take). Well, seeing as how I’ve been running a Writer Positivity series for over 100 posts, I thought it would be a fun chance to collect some of my favorite advice!
PS: The above are not meant to be taken as ‘literal’ rules for writing, but rather advice for leading the lifestyle of a writer~ ♥︎

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT OMG
This goes for writers/writing as well!
So, a lot of my old followers know this story— but a couple years back my PC suffered a hard-drive failure. I lost almost everything on it. I had managed to back up a few docs here and there (and I thankfully I had begun moving things over to Evernote), but I lost 99% of my computer files.
And that included a lot of my writing. It was a very sad and traumatizing experience to lose SO MANY stories I had written over the years. So, please don’t let that happen to you!
If you were waiting for a sign to back up your writing, and everything you care about, THEN THIS IS THAT SIGN.
- Save it on a USB Flash drive
- Upload it to the Cloud
- Save it on Evernote
- Email it to yourself
- Whatever you need to do— do it!

August 26 is National Dog Day, when we paws (get it?) to appreciate our canine companions—especially those adopted from animal shelters. So let’s take a moment to honor (wo)man’s best friend: our clever pups with so much to teach writers about life, love, creativity, and success.
For most authors, writing is a labor of love and not necessarily a major source of income. While you should never, ever cut corners when it comes to the quality of your writing, cutting expenses can make it possible for you to reach more publishing markets. For a more budget-friendly submission process, these thrifty ideas are right on the money!
Every writer has a story to tell. But if you want your writing to be published and read by an appreciative audience, it’s important that you say it — and write it — well. Good writing skills begin with the very bones of your work: the sentence structure.
Some of you may feel that you’ve mastered sentence structure and to you we say, Kudos! All erudite, veteran authors have permission to move on to amusing cat videos and celebrity news. Of course, you can stay if you’d like, but no throwing spitballs from the back of the room.
