By Ethan Gilsdorf

When I write for a public venue such as this, I'm often trying to pass along some writerly trick of the trade. My ideas or advice or tips are for your benefit. My audience is you. Whoever you are.

Not this time.

This time, I'm writing as much for my benefit as yours.

See, I've just come from another harrowing session with my therapist. (Not kidding about the therapist. Every self-respecting writer should have one.)

The Writing Life

Keeping Writing In Your Back Pocket

“Those who take joy in writing are never in want of something to do.”

 

I just came up with that while sitting at my intern desk at GrubStreet. I think it sounds good to me because it’s true, and that’s what good writing is: translating the truth—as we know it—into words. The above quotation is certainly true to me as I have found immense pleasure and repeatedly escaped aimlessness by keeping writing in my back pocket.
