“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” – Haruki Murakami
How novel revision and software development are basically the same thing. This week I enter the last(ish) stage of my revision, discuss the many uses of index cards, character verbs and try not to think about piracy.
Writing updates, quarterly planning, and my thoughts on recent events in the romance writing world.
On managing decision fatigue and why high output (writing all the things!) requires high input (aka my excuse for binge reading).
On trusting your writerly intuition and doing research to name characters.
