The 30-Minute Novelist
from By JoBeth McDaniel
Novels, when abandoned, begin to stink. A journalist with a desk piled high with work may be able to ignore the odor, but it's always there, the stench of neglect and dread.
For most fiction writers, there’s no deadline, no guaranteed payday – just a shadowy world that seems real only when the keyboard is clacking. As a journalist, I’ve taught myself ways to blow past the doldrums: write it rough, read my notes again, call another source.
