Jackie French's Top Tip
'Think! The most beautifully written story is boring if it's ideas are boring. Best seller lists always have at least one book so badly written it makes you cringe to turn the page, but you do keep turning, to find out what happens next. You don't need one inspiration to write a book, but at least ten thousand, twisted and plaited together'.
'Writer's block is never as heavy as a tray of devonshire tea or bottles of beer, and far easier on the back and feet. We have the best job in the universes. Enjoy it'.
