Run Faster

Not too long ago, I had the privilege of attending a run clinic hosted by local Hall of Fame athlete. During the Q&A I asked him for advice about how to run faster. His answer was this: “If you want to run faster, you have to run faster.”

So simple, yet I’d missed it.

The same is true for our profession; if you want to write more, you have to write more. If you want to write better, you have to write better.

About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
