Writing Roots

S18E2 – Pearls from the Masters: John Green

I often get mad at myself because I’m writing poorly, or worry that I’ll never write another book, or feel frustrated because I’m up against the limits of my talents, but I never dread writing. So I often feel that I’m not up to the task, but I never dread it. – John Green

S17E4 – How Do I Determine the Genre of a Book?

By reading a lot of novels in a variety of genres, and asking questions, it’s possible to learn how things are done – the mechanics of writing, so to speak – and which genres and authors excel in various areas. – Nicholas Sparks
