Five things American author Tayari Jones wishes she’d known, to give it it’s full title ‘Five Things I Wish I Had Known When I Published My First Book’ is a blog post by American author Tayari Jones, courtesy of the ‘She Writes’ website. With her third novel in ten years imminent, she shares her pearls of wisdom under the headings of:

1. No one article or review will make or break me.

2. Honor every single reader.

3. Pace myself.

4. This is not my last book.

5.  Keep writing.

It’s a very honest account (no. 2 is especially humbling) and something which, in my opinion, writers of any level would be advised to read.
