So I have to remind myself:
- Write every day
- Challenge the belief that you can’t learn any more about being a good writer
- Read the classics often
The Elements of Style (illustrated one like I have)
The AP Stylebook (all the way back to undergrad!)
Writer’s Market (100th anniv this year)
I’ll update this now and then today.
