I don't know much about creative writing programs. But they're not telling the truth if they don't teach, one, that writing is hard work, and, two, that you have to give up a great deal of life, your personal life, to be a writer.
This week's quote is for my husband. He completely agrees with the last part of the statement (as does my messy house) and I completely agree with the first part. Thanks for all your support, Jared.
