The natrual evolution of the writing process that you talked about, from enthusiasm to desert, mirrors what this NPR'ed author about creativity was saying the other day: that many creative people tend to manic/depressive. A lot, obviouly, doesn't help, but little bit does.

Sandra Gail Lambert

This is such a very good depiction of the writing life. Thanks for articulating it. And I love the photos of you.

The Feminist Grandma

Oh no, Julie. I always stay on an even keel. Except when I don't.

The Feminist Grandma

Sandra - what I really loved in the Patchett book was when she got fed up with hearing "Everyone has one good novel in them" and said, "Does everyone have one good violin concerto? one gorgeous flower arrangement? one brilliant mathematical equation?" Cracked me up.
