Thirty-Two Statements About Writing
Catherynne M. Valente, whose work I've not yet had a chance to check out, has posted an insightful list of Thirty-Two Statements About Writing on her journal. Some very valuable statements that I probably would have been fortunate to have seen fifteen years ago, but like Charlie Stross' similar list of writing advice from a few months ago, most of this is the kind of thing that all writers have to learn on their own. Valente's thoughts on a lot of these topics, though, closely mirror my own, and I'm tempted now to check out her fiction, which certainly comes highly recommended.
