Put your car keys beside your bed at night.Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr’s office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.

Write a crapload of words. Seriously, it’s the best way to get better. Write lots of books, write short stories, write poems. Try different things: even if it fails, you still learned something. Read in all genres and keep an eye out for what works and what doesn’t and why. Make use of beta readers to help you when you’re too close to the work to see the woods through the trees. Learn about the industry – how to query agents, what an agent does for you, how publishing works, what’s selling, what’s not. Treat it as a business, and as a business, you need to have product. I have so many people tell me “oh, if only I had the time to write.” Bullshit. You make time. Wake up earlier, carry a notebook with you, watch one less TV programme a day and write instead. There’s always time if you make it a priority.
