"The 5 Differences Between Professional and Amateur Novelists" is an article that captured my attention this week so I'm sharing it with you.
It was written as a guest post by novelist Charles Finch at Writer's Digest. His first novel, A Beautiful Blue Death, was listed as one of Library Journal's 2007 Best Books. His writing credits also include the Charles Lenox Mysteries and the recently published contemporary novel, The Last Enchantments.
The article addresses several essential areas of importance for writing success: tools, patience, focus, habit and practice. Yes, these terms may be very familiar, but they are worth revisiting and Finch shines a clear light on each of them.
Refresh your thinking, with a read.
