Must be link week here at Spoiled for the Ordinary...
Breakpoint has an excerpt from Donald Miller's book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, talking about the process of writing. We may think we need to "live life" to write, but if that's all we do we'll never do the hard business of getting writing done. He also talks about making life uncomfortable for your characters in order to get them to change.
So be sure to check out "How to Make Yourself Write a Better Story" and tell them Jason sent you. They won't know who I am, but tell 'em anyway.
