A tongue-in-cheek guide to being a better writer

We’ve all seen the guidelines for writers that give the same advice - “read more!” “write every day!”

Maybe that’s why I found this McSweeney’s advice funny. Here’s a sample:

FIND YOUR MUSE
Finding a really good muse these days isn’t easy, so plan on going through quite a few before landing on a winner. Beware of muses who promise unrealistic timelines for your projects or who wear wizard clothes. When honing in on a promising new muse, also be on the lookout for other writers attempting to swoop in and muse-block you. Just be patient in your search, because the right muse/human relationship can last a lifetime.
