“If you want to be a great writer then write a million words, and when you’re done, you will be.”

That particular piece of advice is decades old — the earliest attribution that we could find is to Ray Bradbury in 1974 —  and if you are starting out, almost every author you meet will tell you about “putting in your Million Words.” In essence, it means “pay your dues,” or better yet “learn your craft.”

Through advice and our own experiences, we are here to help writers to get through their own million words. We are all still journeying ourselves, so we hope to make the journey easier by doing it with you, whether you are writing your first million, or your hundredth. Because we never stop learning, and we never stop striving to improve our craft.
