Award-winning author Stacey Keith doesn’t own a television, but reads compulsively—and would, in fact, go stark raving mad without books, most of which are crammed into every corner of the house. She lives with her jazz musician boyfriend in Civita Castellana, a medieval village in Italy that sits atop a cliff, and she spends her days writing in a nearby abandoned 12th century church. But the two things she is most proud of are her ability to cook pasta alla matriciana without burning down the kitchen and swearing volubly in Italian with all the appropriate hand gestures.

Very few people who have an idea for a novel just sit down and dash off something that sparkles. For most of us, we have to suck until we don't suck. It's a matter of Butt In Chair, learning everything you can about the art and craft of writing, and then remembering that you are never the best judge of your work. In fact, no one is.

That's the nature of being any kind of artist though. For instance, I think Trent Reznor from NINE INCH NAILS is brilliant. Is that everyone's opinion? No. Does that mean he's any less brilliant? Yes. No. Does that mean he's a talentless hack? Yes. No. You see? Who gets to be the "decider?"

So it pays to remember that when you're submitting your work to the slaughterhouse of publishers and agents. I know what a demoralizing mess that can be. Just keep writing and sending, writing and sending. Self-publish if you aren't getting the response you want. Be the best writer you can be, but don't get too hung up on that abstract concept either. Because who's to say what's good or not good? (less)

Inside Italian Houses: From Padre Pio to the Proper Way to Hang Your Bra

Outdoor living in ItalyYou want a house? Texas has houses. We're talking a Tyvek-clad, three-car-garage, big brick energy monster that sits in the middle of a "waterfront" subdivision/mosquito retention pond and comes with a fully sodded lawn and a tree. The tree is about the size of a umbrella and will take the years far better than your house. But you can also get your McMansion at the rock Read more of this blog post »
