NY Times bestselling author Kelly Abell

Just in case you were wondering WHEN does the learning stop… it never does (but in a good way).

(We recently discussed writing better stories HERE)

My Facebook friend Kelly Abell, New York Times bestselling author, explains that even at that level she’s always discovering new ways to improve her writing.

So, when you think you are struggling or the Critique Partners (read about their value, HERE) are beating you up, remember: you’re still learning!

I thought this was a great post by a terrific author, explaining a few basic concepts we all need refreshers on occasionally, and the value of a second pair of eyes (more on that HERE) looking at your work. Because if you’re always learning, you’re always improving – and that’s never a bad thing!

wwkKelly’s blog has LOTS of great tips for writers of all venues. Check it out.
