The best piece of advice I got from "On Writing" was to keep your ass in the chair. Keep writing, no matter what, and resist the urge to go back and fix everything while you're writing. You're gonna be writing some stuff and thinking to yourself "this is all terrible," but just keep putting it down on the paper and resolve to come back later and fix it.

BEST. ADVICE. EVER.

I'm probably going out on a limb by being so direct with someone who has posted as much as you have, Mr. Ritchie, when I'm such a new member, but I'm already compelled to be confrontational with you.

Have you ever considered that your posts tend to be mean-spirited and not helpful? Do you see yourself as curmudgeonly as you actually are?

This post is about advice. I shared my advice, something that works for me, and will probably work for a lot of other writers. Then here comes James Ritchie to be a contrarian. Your opinion is not the most important thing in the world, Doc, and I think you need to reconsider whether your advice here is actually helping anyone.

I've lasted two whole days in this forum and I've already been confronted by bossy rule followers, and subject to punitive comments by people who don't like it when others disagree. Real friendly place.

Let's keep a level head folks. Advice and opinions are just that. What one person does is not necessarily right for another.

How very true, Terry. Why the heat? Do what you feel is right for you and forget the other guy. If you find down the line that you may have been wrong, laugh it off and be thankful for the lesson. Words of wisdom from the 'old lady.' :lol:

We can relax and go back to our normal routines now. SonicTremor is gone.

I think the spammers are just making us all crabby.
