Wednesday links: Age and when your writing’s stuck

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

  1. 5 Reasons Your Story is Stuck, from Kristen Lamb’s Blog: It’s happened to everyone… you’re going along in your manuscript, writing like the words will never stop flowing. And then suddenly, they do. But why? Excerpt: “Writers know that quicksand is freaking everywhere. You think you’re on firm footing and then down you go and the more you struggle, the worse it gets.”
  2. It’s never too late to start writing, from Dystel & Goderic: Have you ever felt like you’re too old to start writing? Or, if you’re already writing, too old to get very far? Well, it’s not true. And here’s a little proof. Excerpt: “What do you think about waiting until you’re almost 80 to start a new career? If you’re legendary book editor Dick Jackson, the answer is no time like the present!”
