Myths About Writing

S20 Bonus – Myth Ten: Self-Publishing is Free

At heart, self-publishing is kind of like a bake sale. The end product does not need to resemble the one that comes from a commercial bakery, but it must taste good. No one wants the lumpy, under-baked oatmeal cookies with spinach and alfalfa flavored chips. – D.C. Williams

S20E7 – Myth Seven: Writing is Easy

Writing is hard work. A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time. Remember this in moments of despair. If you find writing is hard, it’s because writing is hard. – William Zinsser

S20E5 – Myth Five: A True Writer is _____
