Me Write Too Plenty August 17, 2007

Lately, I’ve had to edit, write, re-write and ghostwrite a number of things for a variety of audiences that I find myself spent, so much so that I’ve had no success hammering out any one of the four or five missives I’ve in mind to write. All my attempts to do so have amounted to false starts that produce nothing less than drivel.

Suffice it to say that I now have a renewed respect for professional writers, especially those that take on writing gigs on a diverse array of subjects. To paraphrase Murakami, such hired hands may just be shoveling the snow of society, but it does take talent to put on and take off different hats in order to write to one audience or another without losing one’s own voice in the process — not to mention mixing metaphors just to get a point across.

Ah, me.
