Just finished your beautiful book, and think I may immediately reread it. I loved the ending. I loved how it twisted in ways unexpected. Very smart, and well-written. So unlike everything else out there.
In response, I said (among sparse other things) this:
Each email such as yours is one more piece of encouragement to a young author (i.e., me), and is a reminder that magic was captured once at their desk, and can be captured there again.
Looking back on that email…that's a bit of a dour look on things - no? I mean, why would I need "encouragements" or "reminders," right?
But see, that's exactly the thing. That's where I have been with my writing lately - and that is truly how I have felt.
Because writing is not always easy. But what I am finding is that writing becomes a whole lot easier when you do two things:
1) Grab ahold of the encouragement that comes your way.
2) Write. Every day. No matter how you feel, and no matter how it is going.
How about you?
Do you ever have a hard time writing?
Do negative comments regarding your writing mess with you?
What have you found that makes writing easier?
