Welcome back to Fan Friday. Today I’m sharing a bit of wisdom from the incomparable Nora Roberts. The woman is absolutely amazing. Her books are delicious, and I always learn something from them. Her research is top-notch!

Nora also writes a detective series under the pen name J.D. Robb.

Whether writing as Nora Roberts or JD Robb, you’ll almost always be able to find her on the New York Times bestseller list. She’s written over 200 books. Yes, 200. And each book she releases shoots to the top of the bestseller list. She’s a font of writing wisdom, and a great deal of it boils down to this: put your butt in the chair and write.
