Write Like a BOSS: Tips and Quotes From Our Favorite Authors!

By Chelsea Dagger Sep 18, 2013

1 of 12

A wildly famous, ridiculously good-looking, absurdly brilliant, very good-looking, widely acclaimed, good-looking writer once said, "Am I good-looking? Obviously. But that doesn't make writing any easier." (And yes, as you probably ascertained from that startlingly accurate description, that writer was ME.) As one of the most renowned writers of this (or any) century, I realized I was bound by both honor and duty to compile a slideshow of quotes and advice from other great (though decidedly less good-looking) writers, so that you Sparklebutts can learn how to compose the best-selling books of the future (some of which you've already begun writing). Click through to check out tips from some of your favorite authors, and then hit the comments to tell me how good-looking I am (compliments written in sonnet form  are preferred).

Since 2010, Chelsea Dagger (known in real life as Chelsea Aaron) has been SparkLife's sweatiest editor. She's currently working on a how-to-kiss guide for teens, and when she's not conducting smooch-related research on her life-size Joseph Gordon-Levitt cardboard cutout, she's eating pancakes, stocking up on industrial-strength deodorant, and destroying everyone at Harry Potter trivia. (EXPECTO PATRONUM!)
