#100WordsonSaturday: Writing advice

This prompt is written as part of the prompt #100WordsonSaturday: Write about a time you gave someone good advice about writing and/or blogging hosted by Write Tribe. In my case, the reverse happens when writers and friends always give me valuable advice and it’s totally priceless. As part of the prompt, I have tweaked the prompt a bit, starting with the advice I got and doling it out considering I am the one who needs it the most.



Take a walk with your characters to the garden, speak to and let them dance. Always keep a diary with you and jot down thoughts. Let the words flow and write 500 words every day. Wake up in the morning and write, continue the rituals for days. (In short, the advice writer friends gave me). I returned back the kindness with:Just write anything, jot in the diary, scribble on papers but write. Exercise the muscles. It can be complete rubbish. Keep a diary. Blurt out nonsense and sit in the open space, let the thoughts flow. Be free. But, write.





Work-in-progress, seeker and bundle of contradictions. Stubborn and Refusal to grow up and constantly in search of myself, I blurt it out on my space. Drop in and share some love. Indian by choice.

  1. That’s some good advice Vishal :). I always try to write something (not 500) everyday but becomes really difficult with all the time constraints :(.

      1. That’s what I try and sometimes, it takes months and stories lose their crispness. Doing that now, plan is to write 2000 words extra and finish a romance story. But, I’d be happy to seal 500 words.

      2. All the best.. Guess even I should start making plans which will actually work rather than random plans all the time 😛

  2. Very pertinent for all writers and bloggers like me with plenty of ideas and an endless listof chores to finish before I have the luxury to sit ad write. Very good post 🙂

    1. Hi, I have the same problem and end up doing lots of things but nothing constructive. Need to take writing further and it often takes months and months..We are in the same boat.

  3. Albert Hubbard, one of the most prolific writers in American history was once asked the key to successful writing. He replied, “The only way to learn to write is to write and write and write and write, and write and write and write.”

    Well, Writing is one thing that you cannot get worse at by doing it. Great tip, Vishal 🙂

  4. An advice worth following Vishal.. write crap, but make an effort to something everyday..

    P.S: wanted to hop to your blog from quite a long time, but hectic schedule wasn’t letting me come here.. 😛
    will try to be more regular with it.. 🙂


    1. Thanks Geet. I can understand yaa and we get so busy with stuffs..same situation. I need to follow my own advice everyday but time the worry, the blog not disappearing. It’s for eternal.
