    From the Atlantic, links to how some of the greats (Steinbeck, Kerouac, Orwell, others) felt about giving and taking advice about writing.


    My favorite, from Stephen King: "Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open."

    As hard as it is to sit down and write, I don't think there's anything harder than facing a critique disguised as advice. Or the other way around.
