Quentin Bates Writers Tips
Quentin Bates is the author of six crime fiction novels and the translator of Ragnar JÃ³nasson and Lilja SigurÃ°ardÃ³ttir novels. His new novel, ‘Cold Breath’ is out now.
Today Quentin shares his writing tips for aspiring authors.
Just concentrate on the story and donâ€™t let yourself get sidetracked. Donâ€™t be afraid to cut stuff that doesnâ€™t work. Try to do something on your WiP most days, even if itâ€™s just a few words, as it keeps it ticking over in your mind. Donâ€™t ask your Mumâ€™s opinion of your work â€“ ask someone who doesnâ€™t love you.
