What is It That Makes Me Happy as A Writer?

What is it that makes me happy as a writer? That is the question that I am going to attempt to answer today. First, it depends on whether I am writing fiction or nonfiction. What makes me happy as a fiction writer? Well, typically, the process begins with, at least so far, a character or […]

How I can know if I’m being successful as a writer (without even looking into my wallet).

The writing that I want to do, as far as amount and time spent doing it, will, hopefully, if I succeed in what I want to do, make everyone, including myself, doubt my sanity… The more insane I feel when writing, the more successful I’ll know I’m being. I can’t recall as freeing of a feeling […]

What I want as a writer.

To write uninterrupted, without any other obligations, where I can put off even eating to write. And when I get bored of that, I can move on to more fun things, even though I know that my work will always be on my mind because I love it… Insightful. Economics. Where you can financially support me if […]

I don’t really like talking about myself as a writer (except what I think will help me get more money (to a certain extent)), but…

He’s created the literary equivalent of a McDonald’s hamburger: it’s food, but not very sustenary; full of shitty […]

The Rantings of a Crazed, Lunatic Writer

I have not written anything for quite some time. I have been consumed by other things: namely, having fun and relaxing. I have a deep hatred for writing. A deep hatred. This hatred comes from a place of intelligence, combined with whatever it is that makes me a bad writer. How can someone so smart […]

How I Can Become A Better Writer

Behind every good piece of writing are good thoughts. Writing is a series of thoughts strewn together. A writer hopes that his thoughts are coherent, unless he intends for them to be humorous; in which case, he writes an absurdity (with either a grain of truth in his absurdity or a presentation of truth as […]

*Insert a creative metaphor for a writer’s insanity*

I find it interesting, analyzing myself as a writer, that I don’t care about grammar that much, although I’d like to increase my vocabulary (and develop more coherence); but I don’t like talking to people. It’s a weird, contradictory life as a writer, where you don’t want to talk to people, but you want to […]
