Writing: Sometimes You Want to Burn it with Fire
By and large I don’t like to ramble on about writing, because if I’m talking about writing then I’m not actually writing (what I should be) and I’d much rather write than babble.
I also don’t like to sound like an ego-tripping jerk. I am not a great writer. I like to think I’m good, but I’m very far away from great. I’ve also only been writing for ten years so I have lot to learn and a long way to go.
That being said, I like to pretend I have learned one or two things in that time, and that maybe I can make myself useful in some way upon occasion.
Now that I have babbled for three paragraphs, this is not meant as advice so much as … I think people believe that writing gets easier, that those of us who have been writing awhile don’t have the same frustrations and upsets as newer writers. At least, I get asked a lot how I deal with this or that, have I encountered that or this, and the answer is that I fuck up all the time. We all do. That never really stops or changes.
To prove it, all the troubles and aggravations I’ve had with a story I’ve been working on so that peeps can see that even though I should know better, I can still fuck that shit up awesomely.
^Meg, she says what I feel. Also, Meg, soon (like sometime this year really), I’m gonna have to write foursome smut too…. I’m not prepared.
