There's a lot of advice out there in the writing world on how to write. And there's a whole lot of advice on how not to write too. Thing is, it's darn hard to know what's good advice and what's bad, especially if you are just getting started in the writing industry.
Often what works for one writer, won't work for another. Take for example the "don't get it right, get it written" advice. I don't know how many times I've spouted this one and while it works for some folks, it doesn't work for me. I rewrite as I go along. Yes, it takes me longer to get a complete first draft, but that's the way I work. And, if this is the way you work best, then you must ignore that advice.
So, my question to you, what bad writing advice have you been given? Share that advice in the comment column so we can all benefit from it.
