Writers get all knds of writing advice from all kinds of sources. That doesn't mean it's all good advice or that it should be taken at face value. Today we'll be talking about some of the most popular advice writers get that can really hurt your writing. You might be surprised by which pieces of advice we'll be tackling!
We'd also love to hear from other authors and writers out there about writing advice they've gotten that hasn't worked out, or had to be modified. Feel free to call in!
In this episode of Write Pack Radio, the Write Pack asks:
How do writers, especially new writers weed through all the good and bad advice on writing? What are their sources? Is everything you read about writing worth your time? Are the lessons in school and college correct? Is even Write Pack Radio’s thoughts on writing on target? How can you tell what works or won’t work?
Where do you go for writing advice? What sources should you trust? What about books on how to write? What about the many books on aspects of writing? What is a Writers Toolbox? What is in your toolbox?
Have the academic cops arrested the Write Pack for exploring writing advice?
One piece of advice: Writing is an art. We all write differently. But you have to learn the rules of writing to learn where and how to break them.

Stephanie Banks was born into a family of intuitives who encouraged fostering faith in accepting guidance from within as well as from other realms that surround our own. Prior to her near-death experience, she led a life directed by modern day terms that lacked depth and clarity. Immediately following her encounter with death, her life transformed to that of an awakened soul. She has now dedicated her life to mastering ancient wisdom and writing candidly about all she learns through this process. Her unfailing connection to the non-physical realm has offered guidance and transformation to all those who seek profound insight into our existence. http://stephaniebanks.org
Stephanie attended the University of Western Ontario, and is currently enrolled in the master class of spiritual enlightenment. She lives with her family in British Columbia.
Sharing is Caring
The earliest known version of The King James Bible, perhaps one of the most influential and widely read books in history, has been discovered mislabeled inside an archive at the University of Cambridge. The find is being called one of the most significant revelations in decades. It shows that writing is a process of revising, cutting, and then more rewriting. The Bible is no different in this regard, even though some conservative Christians claim it is the divine word of God himself. Perhaps God, then, is a revisionist. This find certainly seems to suggest that.
Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.
*"Best Of" replay for Thanksgiving weekend.
Stanton Peele points out that most people recover from addictions on their own -- without AA or rehab, and what makes the difference is values, not biology.
On tonight’s show, he’ll debunk many of the myths in addiction treatment -- especially the notion that addiction is a “disease” people are powerless to overcome. That defeatest message is especially counterproductive to overcoming addiction, and it’s been supported with bad science and hearsay. Join us tonight to hear what solid science says about how addiction or bad habits can be overcome -- to the point where people are not just going cold-turkey off some substance or behavior till their next relapse, but where they develop meaningful ways of coping that no longer have them turning to their old crutch.
Peele’s book we’ll be discussing is Recover! Stop Thinking Like an Addict and Reclaim Your Life with The PERFECT Program.

Join RevKess and Kalisara as we bring back one of our all time favorite authors and guests, M.R. Sellars.
From Sellars' website: A member of the ITW (International Thriller Writers), M. R. Sellars is a relatively unassuming homebody who, in his own words, “tells pretty lies for a living.” While he had several short stories appear in minor publications, it wasn’t until 2000 that his first full-length novel, Harm None: A Rowan Gant Investigation, hit bookstore shelves, officially launching the acclaimed paranormal thriller series and its associated spinoff.
When last we spoke with our intrepid writer, he had just begun the journey into the Constance Mandalay Novels. Now, we get to find out how his writing is going today, and what he does in his spare time. We will be talking about writing, book tours, homebrew adventures, and much, much more.
