The Hardest Part: A Brief Survival Kit for Working Writers

I’ve never been one for the agony of the writing process. In fact, I think you all spend entirely too much time handwringing and pondering and positing and complaining and advising each other about the difficulties and torments of it. It’s practically its own industry, this whole “coping with the process of writing” thing. It is its own industry, actually. But writing isn’t complicated. You just do it. That’s all. You keep doing it over and over again until you suck less at it….

Oh, the Many Rabbit Holes Down Which You’ll Go, or: I Finally Figured Out Why I Do This

I’ve been trying to figure out how to write this for a couple of weeks now. It remained very egotistical and aggrandizing in my head, and I couldn’t think of an approach that wouldn’t sound like I drink my own Kool-Aid and was offering you a big ol’ sweaty glass of the same thing.
