I believe there are two extreme types of writers. I do not have the courage to be the one extreme, and I am not a liar, so like most, I swing back and forth between the middle.
On one hand there is the obsessive, insane writer. He just doesn’t stop. He blogs, he writes promos, he’s published six books on dog care and three on presidential biographies, two sci-fi novels and has self-published two mystery novels. He will talk incessantly about himself, his books and his achievements. He’s always selling, pitching and promoting.
Then there’s the liar. He has a few scribbles on his desk. He talks about his many projects, (usually screenplays) and his impending deals. He’s come to the conclusion that it’s easier to lie about writing than to write.
Me, I write a dozen hours a week, talk to my kids, feed the dogs and blog. I work on websites, think about cleaning the garage and am working on two books, hoping I will sell them.
But that’s where most of us live. And that’s why writers continue to write. Because they are not lying about writing and they aren’t that crazy to dedicate their entire waking minutes to their writing, we’re just moderately insane.
lots of good stuff
