Jay Parini’s Advice to New Writers

From Jay Parini’s site:

“There is really only one worthwhile piece of advice.¬†Write about what really interests you, and do it every day…”

Read the rest here, and check out Jay’s work while you’re at it. I really like what he says about reading and writing going hand-in-hand. When I am having a hard time writing, reading is always a kind of key.
