Question: What is the best writing tip you've ever heard?

I have heard so many amazing writing tips, but the one that has stood out to me this last year has been to write the supporting characters as though they believe this whole story is about them. It changed my whole approach to writing them, no longer seeing them from the perspective of the main character, but as their own unique self, which makes them much more 3-dimensional and interesting.

About Tayvia Pierce

Tayvia is no stranger to writing, as she has freelanced as a writer for the last 6 years and has an impressive list of ghost-written ebooks under her belt from clients from coast to coast, including Hollywood and New York.

Tayvia has had many occupations in her life, though only discovered her true calling a few years ago when someone foolishly dared her to write a book. It was through this that she discovered her love of crafting stories and characters and began the process of developing the Rise Of The Phoenix series. The first book in the series, A Single Spark, was released in May on Kindle, and she is already working hard on book 2!

She grew up in sunny southern Alberta and resides there still with her two children and cat, affectionately dubbed "Moo-cat.”
