Davis Bunn (Advice for Novelists, Part 87)

Today marks another entry in our Advice for Novelists series in which editors, authors, agents and publicists answer the question:

"If you could say one thing to aspiring novelists, what would you say?"

Here's Davis Bunn's response:

Remember that your first novel is not your profession. Accept that the craft of writing good fiction is a learning process. Focus upon the long term, and dedicate yourself to the craft.

--Davis Bunn, multi-published author of The Centurion's Wife (w/ Janette Oke), My Soul To Keep, All Through the Night, and many more. Visit his website to learn more.

Hmmm, good comment. Any good author gets better as they keep reading. In fact, sometimes it's amusing to go back and read their first novels and see how much they've learned and improved... (as I'm doing right now with one best-selling writer). Though they may not want you doing that! :)
