Friday Feature: How to be a Writer
Last week, J. K. Rowling had Twitter, along with most news outlets, all abuzz when she shared two rejection letters she'd received to queries she'd sent out under her pen name, Robert Galbraith. That's after Harry Potter fame, folks. And yes, some of the same people rejected her. Twice.

Authors are amazingly generous, sharing everything from rejection letters to markets to support. About a week before this, I'd read a great article by Warren Adler, author of The War of the Roses, called How to be a Writer at Any Age. Not only do I agree with all of his points, but I also aspire to be the oldest working writer people know :-)

How about you? Have you ever wanted to write? If so, take a look at Adler's tips. They're uplifting and practical, shared freely by a working writer. Or maybe you want to read Rowling's tweets and her rejection letters, also shared freely by a working writer -- one who knows what she's talking about.

Free advice that's worth much more. How can you pass it up?
