Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Advice That Poisons

Worst writing advice ever cartoons

From Casey Keen’s blog: “Advice – it’s easy to give, but damn hard to follow. From laundry settings to accepting job offers, most people turn to family, friends or the internet for advice. The same is true for writers. We all need help or have questions regarding our work, so seeking advice seems natural. Sometimes advice can steer us in a very bad direction. Here are some of the worst writing tips:-

  • Who cares if it’s good? You just ACCOMPLISHED something
  • Write what you know
  • Work on one thing at a time
  • Plan out your entire plot/book.”

Needless to say, Writers Ink chapters never give out such tips!
