Last night on the live #WritersRoad chat on Twitter we chatted about writing lessons that we learned last year. It was so much fun hearing what other authors and writers had to say that I thought I'd share some of the chat with you. Here are a few tweets complete with links to the person on Twitter:
KrissiDallas I learned more about 3rd person POV by reading others' works-that I can feel just as close to character.
LurchzPrincess Yes, it is! I've definitely learned how to find what fits and hone my voice.
Loriprima My lessons learned in 2012? 1. Sometimes faster is not better.
Yelena_Casale I learned a lot by writing short stories and flash fiction. Hope to do more of that this year. It helps with novel writing, too
ixtumea 2012 learned that it's okay to get off the querying wagon and work on craft.
Chelsea_Pitcher In 2012 I learned firsthand that there is definitely such a thing as working on too many projects at once!
HeatherMcCorkle The most important lesson I learned in 2012 is not to lose focus.
KrissiDallas Another thing I learned from the industry this year is that POV & tense should be intentionally chosen for type of story...
What about you? If you're a writer, what did you learn in 2012? If you're a reader, what did you like most, or least about books you read last year?
