4 lovely writing tips

From my steadfast hunt for writing tips, I came across these few that are wonderful.
1. Have regrets. They are fuel. On the page they fuel desire.
2. Always have more than one idea. 
3. Only bad writers think their work is really good. (haha)
4. Remember, if you sit at your desk for 15-20 years, it changes you. It may not improve your temper but it fixes something else. It makes you more free. 
From Geoff Dyer and Anne Enright
