Gail Carson Levine

  1. The best way to write better is to write more.
  2. The best way to write better is to write more.
  3. The best way to write better is to write more.
  4. The best way to write more is to write whenever you have five minutes and whenever you find a chair and a pen and paper or your computer.
  5. Read!
  6. Reread! There’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become part of you, in a way that words in a book you’ve read only once can’t.
  7. Save everything you write,whether you like it or not.
