Oh, I have lots
of little morsels of advice:
Read often and a lot. Floss.
Invest in a good pair of shoes
and write letters more often.
Listen to the paper take the ink
when you sign your name.
Check out Poetic Asides, a Writer's Digest blog by Robert Lee Brewer, who has gathered writing advice from an impressive collection of contemporary poets, including two of my (Pacific Northwest) faves -- Dorianne Laux and Susan Rich.
How about you: What's the best writing advice you've received, or given?
