“The only truly universal writing advice is ‘If it works, it works.’”
Before we discuss today’s quote, I would like to address something else. The words ‘only’ or ‘truly’ or ‘universal’ are often used by people by way of emphasis or exaggeration. Also, when I post a quote it is open to criticism; in fact, I have the most fun when all of us hack a quote to pieces.
Coming back to today’s quote , I found it on Audrey Druscoll’s blog in a post about writing advice. The Internet is full of posts and videos on writing advice. Books and essays of writing advice existed long before the Internet.
I have to agree with today’s quote not just in terms of writing or blogging but any kind of venture. There is no single ‘correct‘ way of doing anything. When a method works for you it is the right way even if the ‘experts’ advise against it.
What then, is a newbie supposed to do? In my opinion, you can try various bits of advice that you come across and find what is best for you. In doing so you may evolve your own method.
What do you think? I would love to know. You can drop me a line in my comments section. Better still, why not write a post of your own. Just remember to tag it #blogginginsights
