Lee Child is the author of the very popular Jack Reacher novels and one of my favourite authors. I read these 2 articles a few weeks ago at New York Times website about him and it was just fascinating. As Lee Child was writing his latest novel, another writer was shadowing him and writing about how Lee Child writes.
After reading these, I felt a mixture of discouragement and inspiration. I know I have a lot to learn about writing. But I under estimated how much more. But I really shouldn’t let this discourage me. Although I wished I had paid a lot more attention at my English classes in school. I did start to look at writing classes again. I wished they weren’t so expensive. But there’s also the part where students have to read their stories to the class. I think that’s making me a lot more nervous. But it’s a good idea to push myself… I think.
