How a Writer Lives with Yearning - Writer Unboxed

 

Today I’d like to talk about the part of writing that doesn’t get stressed very often—the days we haven’t finished anything, we haven’t hit any goals, we haven’t achieved a single damn thing, save sitting at the keyboard. In those days of limbo, we loll about in our sweatpants and coffee-stained shirts, eyes red-rimmed after too many hours being a slave to our characters’ worlds. We slog, we toil, we siphon off bits of our psyche and our souls.
