I think one of the biggest take-away here, especially for newer writers, is that there isn't a right way to approach your writing. There's a right way for YOU. Study the greats, get ideas and advice from everywhere, but you don't have to follow all of it just because someone says it's a good idea. Apply common sense and do the things that make sense to you.

- Latest Review: Masters and Bastards by Christopher J. Penington
This is such an informative article. I have often found myself having only vague ideas of what I want to write and then keep improvising it. I also feel like I am similarly afflicted as Fritiof Nilsson. I need to continuously check my work before progressing onto the next page. That definitely slows me down, but makes me feel good at the same time.
