Ain't this the truth! As a professional writer for over a decade the best advice I've ever gotten is that writers must write!!

One of the biggest things that prevent writers from writing is the infamous "Writer's block" this blog in the link is specifically created for writers. It has unique words and definitions for that one sentence you want to tweak slightly to make better. It has a load of references for writers to use when researching their subject matter. But most of all it has writing prompts in the forms of pictures, sentences and music all there to break through the barrier of Writer's block. It's a very handy thing to have and it's gotten me through many days of not writing due to it.

“Somerset Maugham said that it took at least six human beings to make one fictional character. That is true of landscape as well, I think. We have to make our landscapes, change streets, create new turnings, rebuild or tear down, change time, and even nature, if need be.” -Mary Lee Settle
