Sue Johnson lives in Worcestershire, UK.
When she’s not writing her other interests include reading, walking, yoga, historical and family history research, studying Italian and cooking.
Sue’s top ten tips are:
Carry a notebook and camera wherever you go – and use them
Write every day, even if it’s only for five minutes
Use the senses – give the reader the full experience
Be prepared to re-write… and re-write… and re-write
Read work aloud – you’ll spot the dodgy bits
Finish what you start – however bad you think it is
Don’t look to your family or friends for proper criticism
Don’t take rejection personally – keep trying
Trust your own judgement – if you like it, stick with it
1% effort each day = 100% of something in just over 3 months
