Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

16 Lies Writing 'Experts' Have Made You Believe

1. To succeed in writing, you absolutely have to join a critique group or take a class.

2. People with writing degrees have a better chance than people without them. 260 more words

Meg Dowell

Mary reblogged this on A Yarny Life and commented:

This is a great list that Meg Dowell came up with. Some of them *might* be helpful (joining a critique group, for instance), but not 100% necessary to your writing career. Some of them might be lies *or* truth based on personal experience (#9). But most of them - yep, complete bunk. You *don't* need a writing degree or class, you can find the writing schedule that works for you and you alone (and that might even change from time to time or project to project), you can *definitely* work on more than one project at once. And don't even get me started on #14. Where did that lie come from? If reading about writing were so unhelpful, why do so many books--and blogs!--about writing exist? Nicely done, Meg! I love it!

WIP Wednesday - January 24

Wow. In the intervening week after my last post, I set my Ravenclaw scarf aside. Instead,  went back to The Twisted Purl and bought a cute Leon Alexander yarn called Diva that came with a small complimentary skein of Glam. 182 more words
