Tough love

That's the title of an article by Jay Stringer at Do Some Damage, a crime writers' blog. When Stringer writes about writing, I pay attention. The man makes a world of sense and says things like no one else. Here's an excerpt:
Learning to write is like learning to fly, you just have to get up everyday and throw yourself at the ground in the hope that one time you miss. You never miss, but you never stop trying.
Is that great, or what? I love this guy. Nobody sounds like Jay Stringer except Jay Stringer, and that's an achievement in itself. If you're a writer who needs a kick in the butt, read this article and then make a habit of visiting Do Some Damage on Thursdays, which is when he posts.
