A big part of writing for me is also about reading. That’s obvious. But I don’t mean fiction. I mean about writing. And so I’ve gone through some of the classics – Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones, Sol Stein’s How to Grow a Novel, Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird and others. I find them helpful. I learn that I’m not at all unique and that’s a good thing when you’re not really sure what writing a book is supposed to feel like with all its frustrations and set backs. I would have most likely given up by now if I didn’t know that I experience the same frustrations famous published authors experience.
