Or maybe several. Here’s what they’re all about:
Many writers will tell you about their writing “practice,” and the regular schedule they keep to stay on track with their novels. Schedule? Not me. Regular? Only if I eat prunes. On track? That’s what all-nighters are for. Don’t get me wrong. I write every day, a lot, but never on what I’m supposed to. Woopsie.
I am my editor’s worst nightmare. I am the writer that decides to tackle a complete rewrite 30 days before a novel is due. Meghan cringes when I post on Facebook that I wrote 10,000 words — roughly 40 pages — in one day.
My phone rings. “Take your time,” she says, in a tremulous whisper. What she’s thinking, though, is “Holy hell, that woman is going to dump a steaming pile of poo on me in 27 days, and it’s my job to dig through it.”
Ciao, mi amigos,
