Writers on Writing

To my writing friends, a quote on writer's block:

What are you afraid of? Why are you not writing?

"There might be a few irrational fears kicking around that keep you from writing. Your spouse will detest your story so much that he or she will divorce you. Your agent, now realizing you are the world’s worst hack, will have no choice but to take out a front page ad in Variety warning everyone in the industry to avoid you. Financial ruin will follow. You will lose your house. You will live on the streets eating garbage to survive. The other wretched souls who are now your garbage-eating neighbors will mock you behind your back for thinking that your story was any good."
--Corey Mandell (slightly edited)

Brain Jacques is my favorite list for a long time. I have the copy of My oldest son and it is such an amazing book. This reading is really helpful as homework help tips. I have pleased to read the entirety of the post. I think people should this list of authors. I will share this post on my twitter to see my followers. Thank you so much.

I used to fail writing because I wasn't sure about my skills. But I heard about essay writing help service where professional writers helped me to compose a profound paper. And now I write with pleasure!

I do believe that if you want to pursue what you really want to do, then you have to do your best to make it happen. Writing is actually one of the things that I would really like to do. I love putting my thoughts into words simply because I want to share what I think about a certain thing or topic. Anyway, what you have written above is a mindset that should not be tolerated because I believe that it is too negative for people who would like to pursue writing in the future or those who are pursuing it right now. Please don't get me wrong about what I said because this is just my opinion.
