Writing About Writing
March 4, 2011
I’m very impressed by all the writers/agents/editors out there who blog about writing. They write beautiful essays with wonderful tips, advice and encouragement. I read them and think, wow, these people really know how to write about writing.
So then I said to myself, I should try that! I can write pretty well, right? I sat down to write a piece and, well, it turns out that writing about writing is actually harder than writing. It turns out that writing about writing is best left to the trained blogging professionals. And if I tried to fake it, you’d be wasting your time reading it, trust me.
But look! I’ve just spent two paragraphs writing about writing about writing! So I guess it wasn’t a total loss.
