Hah, this is the last person i would take advice from. Sure, she's famous and made a lot of money i'm sure, but she CAN'T WRITE!

^^^ ageed. Dude, all she really accomplished is that Washingtonians are really white (I wonder why?) and that Bella is weak and conceited. Tha's all I got fom eading her books. :( disappointment.

I have my own issues with Stephenie Meyer, but the advice she gave was actually good advice IMO. "Write for the joy of writing". I'll agree. I know of a lot of writers who at first wrote things to enjoy themselves, but once they decided to become novelists they only write to see if they can be good enough to pass as an author. They constantly critique their stories and themselves. It's rather depressing to watch.

So I'll agree with Stephenie on this one. Don't worry about whether or not your writing makes you a famous, well-known author. Just write for the fun, and the pleasure it brings to you and only you for now. :)

As much as I strongly dislike like Meyer's works, I agree with her. Writers write because they want to write, not because they just want to become famous. Small thumbs up to Meyer :)

So, maybe some of her pointers would work, would help out, but she's not someone I would naturally take advice from. Of course, she has some advice that's nice and helpful, but I would not want her to be a role model for my work in most cases.

Also you must have self forgiveness and patience. The reason I'm always critquing myself is because I never think it's good enough or I look at it as that's not what I want to convey but you just have to keep going and have patience with yourself esp. if you're like me. Also be humble, I always look for ways to improve my writing even if it's not what i'm looking for.

Stephanie Meyer is not exactly the first person that pops to your head when you want writing advise, agreed. But that particullar advise is pretty good.

Dont necessarily agree with her own writing materials but her advice is spot on, write for your own passions and for the love of writing not for fame

Her advice should be 'Try not to write like me.'
It is pretty good, but almost every author says that. Write for yourself, not to become famous, etc.
I would much rather take advice from JK Rowling, but that's just me.

^ I agree. Her advice is good here, but I personally wish she'd write better. But it is true, this isn't the first time I've heard this advice.

People- You wouldn't take advice from an author who's books have sold way more copies than I can count? The Twilight Saga wasn't the best, but that doesn't mean you can't take advice from Meyer. Bella's conceited and a pussy, but have you ever thought maybe Meyer wanted her to seem like that? Meyer's sold millions of copies and her books are best-sellers. Even Anti-Twililighters should take her advice.
