  1. I agree with Nigel! (See number 7 here – http://natashangan.com/2013/06/10-writing-tips/). But the one writing advice I think every author should follow is –

    Write for yourself. Only by writing the books you love as a reader will you you write books your readers will fall in love with.

    That’s what it’s all about for me x

  2. Best advice? JUST DO IT!
    Not specifically for writing, but soooooo useful for those of us who ‘falter o’er the virgin page . . .’
