Tom Watson: The Essence of Great Writing


Just re-posting a blog post I read last year from Tom Watson who quoted Ken Levine on “what it takes to be a professional writer”:

If you have ANY connections, now is the time to use them. Call in favors. Reconnect with your estranged father. Email your former fiancée who you caught sleeping with your estranged father if her new boyfriend is in the biz. Drop the lawsuit against her even if she’ll make a call on your behalf. So what if it’s humiliating? You’re a writer. Get used to humiliation.
