There is no right way

I've talked with a lot of writers recently about feeling uncertain about our writing processes, because they're different from what other writers talk about doing, or from what seems to be the "standard" process--what if we're doing something wrong? What if our books would be so much better if we could manage to write that other way?

If you've ever felt that way, let me direct you to this excellent post by matociquala.

Word.

That was excellent - thank you! I love how each one started with "whatever." It instantly made me feel better about each thing we are "supposed" to do. :)

Yeah, I just read that post -- very nice. I especially like the 'you must not write so fast' -- or the ignoring of that one :) I also like her term of 'binge' writing...I think that's definitely what I do.
