Be an Author, in 5 Difficult Steps

After the wise advice earlier today, I found this tale of woe and pain. Writer Robert Brockway published his book Everything is Going to Kill Everybody after following his Five Incredibly Difficult Steps to become an author. I'm at step 3, "Doing an Assload of Research". Brockway's article has taught me a truism that had never occurred to me, yet seems to make so much sense: LeVar Burton is a dirty motherfucking liar.


Tips To Write a Book

You may already know that the reason my blogs have suffered for the past 18 months is because I'm writing a book. I don't have much to say about it just yet, because I've done a lot of research, but I don't exactly know what it's about yet. Some days I freak out over that fact, afraid that I cannot actually write something until I already have it all figured out, but I do my best to keep on track. The best thing lately that lets me stay on track is to hear about how many successul authors get their books written. They pretty much all boil down to: write even if it sucks, freakouts are normal, and books take a really long time to write do don't give up.
