on Fiction University:
What is freakin’ wrong with me? I was poring over yet another writing guide, trying to figure out how to improve my writing process. At the moment, I didn’t have one. I hadn’t been able to write a coherent sentence in weeks.
Oh, I’d formally had a process, but it was too slow, too clunky for a “real” writer. Now that I was a published author, I needed speed. I needed something streamlined and sleek so I could turn out book after book without breaking a sweat. Cuz, you know, that’s what “real” writers do.
I stared out the window of my home office as the dread I’d become intimately familiar with began to rise. What if I just got lucky the first couple of times? What if I don’t have what it takes to be a writer?
Disgusted, I swallowed my panic, and moved back to my computer. I had work to do for my “day job,” running my own ghostwriting agency. As I researched content for a client, I continued to sulk and fret.
Until, I “accidentally” came upon a website that changed everything.
