Quote of the Week

Welcome to today’s quote of the week. As I was looking up information about Andrew Lane for yesterday’s author profile post (which you can find here: https://concerningwriting.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/author-profile-andrew-lane/) I stumbled across a quote from him where he gives his #1 writing tip. So, in following yesterday’s theme, today’s quote comes from Andrew Lane, author of the young Sherlock Holmes series! 🙂

“Read lots of stuff. You need to do that for two reasons – firstly so that you can see what’s already been done (you don’t want to spend three years writing about a teenage wizard at a boarding school only to find out that J.K.Rowling got there first) and secondly because you’ll find some really badly written books out there and you’ll think to yourself ‘I can do better than that’ – which is the first step towards actually trying to do better than that.” – Andrew Lane
