Have nerve

Whenever I feel blocked about my writing, I go back to Anne's writing advice, and there's lots she gave on her YouTube channel. Among the many novelists who talked about the writing process, Stephen King, Ursula K. LeGuin, Natalie Goldberg, Julia Cameron, it seems to me that Anne is the least self-serving, least self-mythologizing, and completely selfless in her encouragement of those who wish to take the trail the writing path.

I think it's because, no matter how far along she's gone in her writing life, she's never forgotten how she started, and so her advice is always valuable, always pragmatic. This one here, is one that I often return to. Thanks to Becket for making these memes.
