Until you step out of your comfort zone as a reader, you will never grow as a writer.

Today's writing tips are from 3 great writers:

1. "Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose. If you have the knack of playing with exclaimers the way Tom Wolfe does, you can throw them in by the handful." — Elmore Leonard

2. "Always carry a note-book. Or YQ. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper (or a wallpaper) you can lose an idea for ever." — Will Self & YQ Baba

3. Show, Not Tell: "Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." – Anton Chekhov

Today's writing tip is on the opening lines of prose or poems by one of the greatest living writers, Stephen King:

“An opening line should invite the reader to begin the story. It should say: Listen. Come in here. You want to know about this.” King’s discussion of opening lines is compelling because of his dual focus as an avid reader and a prodigious writer of fiction-he doesn’t lose sight of either perspective:

"We’ve talked so much about the reader, but you can’t forget that the opening line is important to the writer, too. To the person who’s actually boots-on-the-ground. Because it’s not just the reader’s way in, it’s the writer’s way in also, and you’ve got to find a doorway
that fits us both."

If writers stop writing,
it means that their hearts've healed.
If not, their next work is going to break yours.
