    Writing a novel...

    Hi,
    I am about to write my first novel, and I need some advice from brilliant writers in this forum.
    Thanks.

    Ok, I think that was a hard one. What about asking you to suggest some writers to read their works. Just suggest some native English modern writers. My teacher suggested that I will learn from reading others' works. What do you think?

    Definitely, but remember Samuel Beckett's advice that the writer who doesn't repeat themselves repeats others.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the advice!
    A question for tdol. What do you mean by that a writer who does not repeat himself does repeating others?
    For me, I am trying to write about some real experiances from my own culture and life. I am trying to read others' writings to learn and to see what may other writers be enterested in.
