I’m going to be mighty busy today. My esteemed colleague at the Chalcedon Foundation, Andrea Schwartz, has organized a webinar with me as the perfesser–young people from all over the country who want to be writers, who are going to ask me all about writing. The questions will be live, and I won’t get to see them in advance, so who knows what they’ll spring on me?
I’ve got to hustle now and get the decks cleared for this. You know, the one question I never fail to hear–I mean, if I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times, literally–is “How long does it take you to write a book?” Well, that depends on whether you’re writing Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire or Jonathan Livingston Seagull, or something in between.
So, if you’re new to this blog and are looking for something to read, today would be a good day to browse the archives–’cause I don’t know how long the webinar will take. I’ll be back as soon as I can.
