I'm self-consicous about a lot of things, but my writing isn't one of them. I've been writing for as long as I could hold a pencil, and I'm damn good at it. But I'll tell you what--when writer's block hits, there's nothing on this earth that can dislodge it.
I had to write a quote for a press release today (just the quote; someone else was writing the release) and I swear to God it took me close to an hour to write exactly 71 words. And don't get me started on the award nomination I just (sort of) finished. The first one turned out very well. The second is crap, and that means I'm going to have to rewrite it tomorrow.
I love to write. I hate to write when I have to write.
