Writers Share Career Advice On Their Own Hands [Pics]

Fiction authors, artists and editors scrawl writing advice on their palms in a snapshot series meant to inspire the creator in all of us.

Writing can be a relatively solitary business. It is usually a person, by themselves with their thoughts and words, and when those words become stuck and cannot make it onto the page, a writer is often alone in their frustration. Shared Worlds, an interdisciplinary program dedicated to writing, wants scribes out there to know that they are not alone. They have compiled a series of photos of creative folk, who inscribe advice and inspirational words onto the tools of the trade, their hands.

The project, called Hand In Hand, is:

A simple reminder that you’re not alone on this path you’ve chosen. [There are days when] it just might be cool to have someone who’s been there walk hand-in-hand with you–to urge you to persist, to tell you to write something new, to remind you not to lose faith in your imagination.

Shared Worlds is a two week summer program for 8-12th graders at Wofford College in South Carolina, where students come together to create shared worlds of fiction, and then create their own work within that world. But the ‘hands-on’ advice is not just for high-schoolers, if you’re feeling an ounce of writer’s block or self-doubt, scroll through the gallery below to be inspired by those who have been there before and see more here.
