It's a great look inside his process as a writer... and it's just good reading. I particularly liked this bit in yesterday's post.

My outlines are like Britney Spear’s parenting skills. I’m pretty certain of the outcome, but it’s the level of unexpected chaos along the way that makes it interesting to watch.

That's for those of you not reading it already :D

I popped in a lot awhile ago but things have gotten a little rough for me right now so I haven't been back. I'll have to bookmark it so it's easier to remember.
Is this my reality or yours?
