Why?

Why the fuck am I doing this? What gives me the presumptuousness to offer writing advice?

Valid questions. I am not an expert. I am a writer only in the sense that that's how I spend at least four hours a day. I don't make money at it or really have any business sense. So the answer is, I'm doing this for me. Natalie Goldberg, in Writing Down the Bones, noted that she began to teach writing not too long after she'd started writing. In the process of teaching, you work out your own writing process. You learn from teaching. I'm learning what the fuck I want to say and how the fuck I want to say it. I am also immersing myself in writing so that there's no way I can possibly avoid doing it. Think of this blog as a giant narcissistic self-guilt trip. Yeah.
