Flavorwire: Bad Writing Advice From Famous Authors

writingtip writing bad advice
Hemingway ... presumably editing

Emily Temple has posted on article on Flavorwire titled "Bad Writing Advice from Famous Authors." I don't agree that in context all these tips are bad, but the article is a fun read. What it shows more than anything else is that every writer has their own pet axioms that they may or may not live by.

However, I pretty sure Ernest Hemingway lived by his rule to:

“Write drunk; edit sober.” — Ernest Hemingway

If you need more advice to get cracking on the Great American Novel, then you might try my surefire tools of the trade.
