The only writing advice that matters

Write. Sit yourself down and write. Every day.

I’m sorry if this doesn’t feed your ego or make you a unique snowflake. It will not guarantee you riches or fame or even the slightest recognition of your skills. If you want those, there are far better means to those ends and I suggest you undertake them. There is no other solution, no other path. All additional considerations/conditions are secondary, whether you have to have absolute stillness or need the silent admiration of the other writers at the local Starbucks or can write even in the din and clangor of your children’s playtime.

It does not matter what you write. It only matters that you write.
