One piece of advice directed towards aspiring writers that drives me nuts is; “write every day.” If you’re a writer who follows other writers, you can’t escape Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest without seeing those lovely inspirational quotes and memes that are constantly touting this same sentiment over and over again. I know a lot of people are going to disagree with me on this, but this is why I think “write every day” is bullshit.
You know what makes me sad? Seeing people give up on their dreams/aspirations due to self-doubt or discouragement.
Perhaps I’m biased, but I have always considered writing to be a form of art. You’d think that wouldn’t be a problem, but there are a lot of people who will adamantly disagree with that statement.
