Writing is a balance between keeping the voices in your head happy and pretending to be a functioning member of society, all while drinking copious amounts of coffee and secretly hoping some friendly elf will come finish your book for you.
WHAT A WRITER SAYS VS. WHAT THEY MEAN
- I’ve just spent two hours writing! = I was totally on Twitter.
- Of course I know how this book will end. = It ends with me sobbing in the corner. Duh.
- I have writer’s block. = The voices in my head aren’t talking to me today.
