Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Five Habits to Writing Success

  1. You don’t find your calling, your calling finds you
  2. The ending is its own entity
  3. The sexiest sex isn’t on the page
  4. Just keep writing
  5. The wisdom of the poets.

“I love reading poetry even though I wouldn’t think of writing it. A great poet can say in two lines what it takes me a whole novel to express. If I’ve learned from any kind of writing, it’s poetry – and the lesson is concision. What can you leave out and the reader will still get the message?”

From ‘Five habits that led to Ian Rankin’s success as a fiction crime writer‘ – Globe and Mail’s HABITS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE
