Writing Advice from John Updike

Well that was no help at all.

The only writing advice I’ve ever found genuinely helpful is the one from Roald Dahl about stopping in the middle of a section while you’re on a roll so that when you begin the next day you can pick it right up and continue rather than staring at a blank page wondering where to start. An hour a day in an armchair, I just doze off.
