    She gets it!

    I had to stop part way through the book and write Heather Sellers to say "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" The pages are all marked up with so many "Yes!" and "She gets it" scrawlings and cross-refs to stuff I've written on my blog. Like Heather, I'm addicted to self-help writing books, but hers is the first that got me to unearth the "giant incoherent failure" of my first draft from last year's Nanowrimo and get to work on revising it. I love what she writes about people bragging about how busy they are. Drives me crazy too!!! People don't want to have the time to do what they say they want. That way they have a perpetual excuse for putting it off. I was an obligation junkie for years -- easiest way not to follow through on larger goals. Love how she clears out her schedule for writing, likens it to the way time stops for a new lover, how nothing else matters, you don't have to "schedule it in" or be disciplined -- you want to give it every second you have. She also describes the "illusion of not having enough". All these lies we tell ourselves to "sustain the illusion" -- I do this with running, don't want to go out because it feels like going backward, exposing how far I am from my goal. So too with writing. I've been having all these breakthroughs lately that center around the idea that the hard part is not what we think. The inspiration isn't hard, it's the day by day, little by little, "shut up and write". It's patiently plodding along, chopping wood, trusting the process, being okay with the false starts and setbacks. She is up there with Anne Lamott, Natalie Goldberg, Julia Cameron and Stephen King in the impact she's had on my writing. Already! (Just bought the book on Friday.)

    Just What I Needed

    I'm not a new writer, but I 'stall' now and then. There are plenty of books that address the issues we writers face on a daily basis. I've read many of them. But I've not been able to put a name to the roadblocks in my writing career--until now. Page after Page, by Heather Sellers, addresses the issues that make writing so hard to stick with. Her voice is friendly, often humorous. You find yourself looking over your shoulder, wondering if she's been watching you all along. You want to call her up and invite her over--swap writing stories with her over cappucinos at Starbucks. True, the beginning of the book focuses on the new writer, but seasoned writers can stand the positive reminders peppered througout those beginning chapters, and, more importantly, pocket the early message as praise for having stuck with a profession I once read is rated second on the list of difficult careers. Wrestling alligators is first. The second half of the book enlightens and arms you with the most amazing, simplicstic logic that you find yourself wondering why you didn't see the solutions to your personal roadblocks yourself. The tone is not condescending. It is not didactic. This book is an enthusiastic cheer from someone who clearly loves writing and will do anything in her power to keep you loving it too.
