If you’re an author, you know that writing is hard, right?
In this week’s episode, Taylor examines some of the questions she receives at classes and via email and considers the many ways in which questions on plotters versus pansters, or writing technique can often be answered with one response. Writing is hard. We discuss the topic and the best ways to overcome these writing problems. Hint: The answer involves sitting down and writing.

Favorite book for 2016? Of course it’s only November, but my hunch is that it will be Lab Girl, by Hope Jahren (nonfiction; she’s a scientist and a terrific writer). Her interweaving of her personal story with (related!) stories of the natural world was unlike anything I’d read before.
Happy reading (and writing).
Thanks for chiming in, Karl. Interesting, when I first saw your title I assumed it was another thriller using the “_____ Girl” title format that’s so successful with thrillers right now. I’ve downloaded the sample and look forward to checking it out. Based on the reviews and sales numbers at Amazon, I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this one before now. Non-fiction rarely crosses my personal radar, so I thank you for calling this one out.
