Doubled-Spaced: What I Learned From Other Writers

13 Apr

In case you didn’t already know, I’m also blogging over on If you haven’t already had a look at the site you really should. It’s packed with useful articles, tips and advice, and it’s not just for Irish writers. I have a few articles on there about e-books and using social media to sell books, and I have a guest blog called Double-Spaced which I post once a week.

Today’s post is about what I learned from other writers, and how I used what I learned in my own writing life.

“For years I sidled up to writers whenever I had the chance, hoping to discover the secret to international bestsellerdom by some form of osmosis as yet undiscovered by the scientific community, attending signings, going to workshops, watching interviews on televisions, hiding in the bushes outside their study windows… Okay, not the last one. (I have to say that. For legal reasons.) But while I ultimately concluded that my time would be better spend actually writing, there was some useful tips, tricks and advice that I picked up along the way.”

You can read the post here. also has a snazzy store (where – save us all – there is a Double-Spaced teddy bear for sale!) which stocks this fantastic #amwriting mug.

The perfect gift for that coffee-guzzling writing tweeter in your life, I’m sure you’ll agree! (I so want one.)  Click here to visit the store.
