15 Tips for Being a Writer
1. Do not flatter yourself
It will not be easy. Glory and honor are far away, and you will have to work hard. As Hank of the Lascivious California series says, “being a writer is shitty, it's like doing homework for the rest of your life.”

2. Read every day
“If you don’t have time to read, then you won’t be able to write anything and you won’t be able to.”
Stephen king

“Tolkien did not read fantasy in the spirit of Tolkien, he read books on Finnish philology. Read something unexpected. ”
Neil Gaiman

“I can read a dozen boring books and make one interesting out of them.”
Isaac Asimov

3. Write every day
“With a hangover or not, I write every day for three hours, how I get up until I finish what I’m doing.”
Gore Vidal

“I always told myself: treat it like work from nine to five. If you have a tight work schedule, you just go and work, and it doesn’t matter if you feel good that day. I can sit at the table every day and give out the daily allowance. I just do not give myself permission to evade. "
Salman Rushdie

4. Learn
Sign up for a library, for writing courses, for online workshops. Or just practice writing lyrics. “For starters, you can set yourself the task: for a story a week, fifty-two stories a year, for five years. You will have to write a lot, throw away a lot or burn, until something starts to work out. It’s better to start right now to get rid of the preparatory work faster. Because I’m convinced: over time, quantity becomes quality. ”
Ray Bradbury

5. Turn your phobias and obsessions into a corporate identity
“I write about what scares me. I never wrote about snakes, because I am not afraid of them. I wrote about rats because they terrify me. I think when we write, we try to get rid of our own phobias. ”
Stephen king

6. Design Your Rituals
Virginia Woolf preferred to compose while standing, Mark Twain - while lying down, Roald Dahl wrote in a small unheated shed, wrapping himself in a sleeping bag, Agatha Christie invented another murder when washing dishes, wrote Nabokov on cards, Dostoevsky pronounced his novels out loud, Schiller lay in the table rotten apples, and Dovlatov did not use in one sentence words starting with the same letters. Come up with something of your own; you may not attract the public, but at least you won’t be bored.

7. Eavesdrop, peep, record
A bus stop, a trip to Everest, a window into the courtyard - the writer will always find material for a new book. Dickens visited morgues in every new city, Chekhov visited cemeteries and brothels. Oscar Wilde wrote: “I never travel without my diary. It’s necessary to read something ingenious on the train. ”

8. Develop your imagination
There are many ways to develop your imagination. Come up with a biography for passers-by, play associations, write stories about anything. They told about Chekhov that he could take the first thing he got - for example, an ashtray - and write a story about her the next day.

"Imagination is an erection of the mind."
Victor Hugo

9. Find your words
“When you write, the words should go like this: BIM BIM BIM, BIM BIM BIM, BIM BIM BIM, BIM BIM BIM. Each should be filled with juice, they should ooze with power. They should make me turn the pages. BIM BIM BIM, BIM BIM BIM, BIM BIM BIM. ”
Charles Bukowski


10. Do not be distracted
Turn off Facebook, phone and TV. Start writing right now. "Do not wait for inspiration, you have to chase him with a baton."

Jack London

11. Invent a Hero with whom you are interested
"Each character must want something, even a glass of water."
Kurt Vonnegut

12. Make an unexpected story
“The four greatest novelists in the history of mankind - Balzac, Dickens, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky - did not write very well, and there is no way to get away from this fact. And this proves that if you know how to tell a story, create a character, deploy an action, if you have sincerity and temperament, no matter how you write. Nevertheless, it’s better to write good than bad. ”

“If you don’t know what to do next, bury someone alive.”
Edgar Allan Poe

“I always start with one hero, well, maybe two, and they conflict with each other. The cat sat on the litter - this is not the plot. The cat sat on the dog bed - that’s the plot. ”

13. Write about what really excites you
"You need to write a novel only when it hurts as if a hot turd crawled out of you."
Charles Bukowski

14. Remember: the beginning is the most important
"Never start with the weather."
Elmore Leonard

“Start ... start ... How to start? I'm hungry. It’s necessary to pour coffee. Coffee will help me think. Maybe first write something, and then reward yourself with a cup of coffee. Coffee and cupcake. Okay, so you need to deal with the main topics. Maybe a banana nut. This is a good cupcake. ”

15. Do not spare the reader
“Be a sadist. No matter how cute your characters are, terrible things must happen to them so that
