Man, I love the world of writing. I am a gourmand of writing, a glutton for critique and beta writing, a gobbler of novels, a gorger on others’ words. Judging is enlightening, beta reading a challenge, and critique groups an opportunity to hear smart, creative people bat words and ideas around. But like eating, one can overdo. If writing were eating, I would be that 400-pound hacker of our president’s imagination.
Minor problem: there are so many possibilities. It’s easy to do the things I like and ignore … no, ignore would be easy, I should properly say procrastinate on … those less interesting subjects, like the hard and confusing work of marketing my first book.
So, here I am.
