Having taught writing at New York University, I feel very protective of fledgling writers! Aim high, keep your eye on the target, and don't look down. (My mentor, Margaret Atwood calls it "tightrope walking across Niagara Falls".)
So when Huffington Post asked me to blog for Writers' Wednesday, I thought it was time to talk about "Five Lies They Tell You About Writing". Here's the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ca-belmond/writers-wednesday_b_1134918.html .
Your comments on this blog will be posted on the Huffington Post.
