Writing advice from the movie “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”


You probably know it’s healthy (and good for your craft) to step away from the computer for a while.

And possibly you also feel guilty about “wasting time” when you do so, especially if you split time between writing and a day job.

Well, Writer’s Digest is here with good news: Go see the movie Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and enjoy some escapism that also offers valuable writing advice.

The movie starring Melissa McCarthy is based off the memoir of biography writer Lee Israel, who turns to forgery at a particularly low point in her life.
