The Q: What's the Best Piece of Novel Writing Advice You've Ever Received?

We've all received writing advice at some point in our lives. Whether it was a high school English teacher who suggested we cut back on using passive voice, a conference presenter who recommended abandoning our prologue, or a roommate who told us to never give up (and to, perhaps, get a second job in order to help pay the rent). The best pieces of writing advice stick with us and make us better writers, so it's important we share that with others—after all, writers need to stick together.

The Q

So my Q to you is: What's the Best Piece of Novel Writing Advice You've Ever Received?

Here's the best piece of writing advice I've ever received, which came from a close friend/published writer:

Always remember that you love and enjoy writing,
even on the days when it's the most difficult thing to do.
