For unfamiliar with them, writing sprints are when you write as many words as you can in a set timeframe. Not everyone enjoys writing sprints, and that's okay. Do you find writing sprints helpful, or a hindrance?

If you’re today, that’s great. Now then, what are you LEARNING today? From your own writing, from the world around you, from your research, from… anything and everything you come in contact with?

Never panic when writing a story, always finish it, even if it goes into a drawer. Each story has a length attached to it where it feels right to stop. Finish it to the length it acquires. A finished story can be used. It may grow legs later on.

Let's talk beta readers . A beta reader reads your writing with the intent to help you improve it. Some use beta readers like a critique partner, others as a sort of test reader. What do you look for in a beta reader?

It’s like being so bodily weak and gravity crushed that words are heavier than anvils, and I can’t lift one.

Some define writer's block as lack of motivation, others as lack of inspiration. Still others don't believe writer's block even exists. So what is writer's block to you?

I used to keep files boxes full of old journals, but got tired of lugging those around every move, so I scanned the pages so I would have digital copies if I ever wanted to go back through them, and then shredded the originals.

WEDNESDAY. If ever you're feeling uncertain about yourself or the world, and you feel puzzled by someone's behavior, or even your own, just remember: we share 90% of our genetic material with cats, so that explains pretty much everything. NOW GO CHASE THE LASER, MEOW PAL

If you port your current work into it, at least that would give you a sense of whether it facilitates progress compared to what you were using.

Toni Morrison got her first New York publishing job at 36, published her first book at 39. She was a single working mom who woke up every morning at 4am to write. She wrote all those breathtaking books on stolen time, at the pace her life dictated.
