He didn't know where to begin. To open a facebook page or tweet updates to his, as yet unwritten, novel luring followers in.

He still had to update the blog. Take a snap for Instagram and he'd signed up on a five year long writer's course starting today.
'Guaranteed to bring success.'

It'd hopefully be worth the huge cost.

The first lesson.
In came the tutor, smiled at them sitting with pens poised.

"Read all you can. Whenever you can.
Anything.
Everything.

Whenever you're not reading- Write.
Everything.
Anything"

    Basically, that's all anyone needs to know. Avoiding Facebook and Twitter, though, that's a whole new exercise... nice drabble Lisa, I like the way the message is powered home at the end :)

    I love that! One of the BEST bits of training I got on my Teacher Training course was "Remember - When you've covered all that you need to cover, you can ALWAYS use 'FO-FO'" "What does that mean?" My lecturer smiled and said "F*ck Off and Find Out!" The BEST bit of teaching advice I was ever given! :-D
