Words of writerly wisdom

A few months ago, a writer for WestWord, the magazine of the Writers Guild of Alberta, contacted me for words of wisdom. Not for herself - she wanted to know what I would you tell myself if I could write a letter to the writer I was when I first put pen to paper.

My thoughts are featured in the current issue of the magazine, along with those of other guild members.

The bottom line? Focus more on doing a good job, and less on whether a particular story is going to published. Work hard and keep the faith.

Still good advice . . . if only I'd take it!
