My advice to every young would be writer and every budding author would be to get a job as a cook for a few months. Why? It’s simple, everyone has different tastes and even the most accomplished Chef can’t please everyone. Readers, like Diners can be a fickle and finicky lot. The sooner you learn this the better off you will be.

The next was : learn all the forms and enjoy them, then completely forget them and write how you feel. best wishes from baldy
