The Life of an Aspiring Author

I've been an aspiring author for seven years, seven months, and twenty-five days. I've written over three-hundred thousand words. I've worked on six different stories. And I have completed exactly zero novels. There is no honest way that I can say I'm proud of myself. There's no reason why I shouldn't have a completed book by this point. You've heard of serial entrepreneurs, I'm a serial wannabe writer. I'll work on something, write thousands of words, be happy with it, hit a road block, and then toss the whole thing in [...]

That is what it's like to watch a Broadway production. Whether it's your first show or your fiftieth, there's nothing that can surpass live theater. As you watch, you're constantly [...]

That's rarely the case and yet that's typically how most of us write. We expect writing inspiration to appear out of thin air, envelop us in its glory, and take us on an amazing imagination-filled ride. Certainly, that can happen, but nine times out of ten, I've found that I have to actively search for writing inspiration. Thankfully, I just had a unique opportunity. This [...]
