writing and bread

i came across this great article at Shrinking Violet Promotions (a blog for introverted writers).

Anti-Advice from Erin Bow (author). she goes through all the advice we get as writers, how guilty it makes us feel, and then encourages us to find the way that works for us. i think the best part of the post is where she compares the writing process to making bread.

So pleased to hear someone say this out loud! PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT! One method does not fit all! You have to do what works for YOU! Yay!

Isn't that a great blog? If you have time you should browse some the older posts. It's kind of like going on a writer's retreat :)

And I LOVE that quote and snoopy cartoon up there! I stole them :)
