writing about writing is probably every writer's favorite topic. i am always eager to read how other writers do it, as a means of procrastinating my own writing i guess, but i also feel hesitant, maybe that i won't be able to relate or that i'll find out i've been doing it all wrong. "dancing on the head of a pen" was enjoyable to read. he made some good points, and i took a few notes. the things that have stuck with me the most is how he pointed out that you can write a little bit every day and end up with as many words for a book in only a handful of months, and the idea that when you stop writing, mid-sentence, it's almost easier to pick up where you left off when you come back to it the next day.
