I spent two years in grad school contesting the wisdom of my mentors. Now, almost out of the safety net of deadlines, I’m thinking of these statements below while I pursue more publication jobs. Comment below and tell me if these statements are true or not. Or tell me some other awesome writer bits.
~A writer always writes or thinks about writing.
~Find me a writer who doesn’t carry a pen and paper or a phone with an app for writing.
~Find me a writer who doesn’t read the web or print and thinks of how to improve it or edit it or cringes with ‘I wish I wrote that.’
~Writing is hard work.
~Writing is rewriting.
It’s great to be a writer in this messed up world. I appreciate the First Amendment and the privileges we have. Take care and write on.
