Don’t Help

If someone wants to be a writer and asks you to help them do that, don’t waste your time. What they’re truly saying is that they want an editor to come by their house (at the writer’s convenience) and look at all the wonderful things they’ve written and write them a big, fat check to buy it.

They do not want advice or suggestions or anything else you may have learned over the years while you lived your own struggle to become a writer.

Don’t waste your time. You will regret it and that is time lost that you could use to benefit your own writing endeavors.
