IF IT WERE EASY, EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT . . . In a post on his website, Jeremy Blachman shares his frustrations in writing a novel based on the Anonymous Lawyer weblog. Some of the backstory is available here.
I admire the honesty of Blachman's post. I hope he understands that his frustrations, though surely maddening, are typical of any writer trying to bang out the first draft of a novel.
