Glenn A. Bruce, MFA, was born in Miami, Florida, son of William Arden Bruce, an aircraft router for Eastern Airlines, and Verona Sizemore Bruce, a mechanical draftsman and advertising executive for Panelfold Doors. Glenn figured out how to "write his way through school" from the 6th grade, editing the school newspaper, and again later in college. A professor suggested writing for TV and had a writer-producer friend send a copy of "Hello Larry" - but when Glenn read it, he knew instantly he was not destined to write sitcoms. Nonetheless in 1979, Glenn moved to L.A., worked for rental houses Leonetti and PSI and almost became a Teamster driver. That Fa

Usually, they are different in tone. So, if I don't feel like working on one, I can work on the other. 2) I always have (we all do) something that needs editing; so, if I don't feel like writing, I can always edit. 3) If I am writing something new, I follow Hemingway's advice, which was to never completely "finish" a sequence at the end of your writing day; always stop just short of the end, or begin (at least rough out) what needs to come next, so that tomorrow, you won't face a "blank" page.

For me, it's just what I do best. I am moset comfortable doing this work. I always wrote a lot, even in Elementary School, and it never stopped - even when I had other jobs. But most of those were in the arts as well - mainly music - so, I have been in the arts all my life. It's just a good fit. My hours are mine, my schedule. Plus, in writing novels, I don't have anyone else to answer to about what I choose to write or how I write. Of course, that also comes with age and experience.(less)

Working with an editor

Finding an editor who suits your needs is somewhat like finding a golf pro who can actually improve your game (without ruining it).

As any golf pro worth his salt will tell you, the best way to help a golfer (at any stage of his/her progress) is to zero in on strengths and help them along by changing as little as possible. This is so because every golfer has a unique swing; changing... Read more of this blog post »
