Some old advice for you: 1) Read a lot; 2) Write a lot. These two go hand in hand. You canít have one without the other. Reading will teach you things about the craft and itíll give you an idea of what has come before. Writing gets the story told and it develops your skill. Do these two things often
Thanks, I'm trying to work on doing more reading and writing... unfortunately my increased course load means less free time :/
I'll probably try my hand at it, and if I feel I have a legitimate shot, then I'll pursue it. When you see three brothers from one family all become very successful writers it makes you think "Hey, I'm a good writer, maybe I could do that!."
Someone has to write all of those movies and television shows right? Might as well be the guy from the Ranger board!!
