I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but there is a wonderful resource for us. I found her via Susan, who mentioned this once ago: there is a doctor just for us writers! Yes. And she heals the wounds and breaks we writers face, covering topics like writer jealousy, writer self doubt, anxieties about writing, and advice on how to carve out time to write in a busy world.
Her column appears every Friday on M.J. Rose’s blog Buzz, Balls & Hype. Today’s post is particularly meaningful for me as my writing process is just so darn slow and I have to keep telling myself all the time, “We all go at our own pace.” I get real down myself for that (plus it doesn’t help when people now say, “Hey you’ve been working on that novel for a loooong time, huh?” She repeats the magical words, in this week’s post.
