I was going to go into an in-depth account of why I haven't written much these past few weeks, but no matter how eloquently I tried formulating my excuses...that's what they were. However, I did conclude something new. My excuses (why offer more than one when any ol' one will do?) are based on myths I believe about writing. And what's cool is that another writer has already confessed to some of the very same ones I subscribe to. So instead of me reinventing fire, let me just copy and paste some thoughts from Jeff Ambrose and say: ditto.
(BTW Jeff's comments are based on the gleanings from Dean Wesley Smith's recent series of blog posts about his experience of writing a 70k word novel in 10 days. Read the comments especially for all kinds of myths we writers buy into.)
Thanks, Jeff, for allowing me to steal your salient points. And again: ditto.
