There's nothing like deadlines to get you out of writer's block. The second thing is to keep writing, even if you have nothing to say, because if you keep writing, eventually that a-ha moment and inspiration will hit. (less)

The second best thing is when someone emails you and thanks you for writing the book and tells you how it helped him/her. That makes you feel like all the pain and time to write it and rewrite was worth it. (less)

This has been a positive day. As some of you know, I’ve been depressed for months. Part of that depression has been the natural grieving process after my friend’s death. But my depression grew darker and scarier over the past five months, coinciding with the revelation of the sexual assault crimes and attempted cover ups at my alma mater, Baylor University. In fact, last March I started writing... Read more of this blog post »

“Jessica planned on having her very last Craigslist date the following night. "I just want to find a guy worth keeping in touch with," she said.

I thought about that. In fact, I thought about everything she'd written me. Everything so many had written me. All the talk of orgasms and lovers.

Especially when it came to lovers -- the inability in both men and women to find that one person, that one partner, who totally "gets" you. No matter what anyone said, they 'all' seemed to want that.”
