I understand that this post by Cristian Mihai is basically for fiction writers.
But as a non-fiction writer, I think the same thing applies: we, as writers, have to write, not the perfectionist way, not by thinking that we must produce the best first draft… but because what makes us happy is writing. So we must write.
We must produce.
And we must not care, at all, what others think… because in the end, it’s the opinion within that’s stronger than the opinion without.
Thank you, Cristian Mihai.
I thought I should spread the word ;).

In my humble opinion, there are two main rules to becoming a writer: read a lot and write a lot. You can’t do one without the other, no matter how much you try. Fiction writing is different than any other kind of writing, and there’s a point in knowing the conventions of the genre before you can break them.
But today’s post is about writing. A lot.
