Wednesday Hangovers

  1. I really miss writing as a teenager – I used to race home from school every day, so excited to get to spend an hour or two just writing, loving it, and believing with all my heart that what I wrote was brilliant. I wouldn’t give up that part of my history for anything – it’s the kind of free-flowing, joyful writing mindset that I really strive to find nowadays when I’m writing first drafts (and it’s almost impossible to re-capture now that I have been through a zillion useful crit groups, reviews, etc). I think that time of my life was really good for my overall development as a writer, even though maybe I could have gotten published a few years earlier if I’d been more ruthless and less in love with what I was writing.
