WRITERS ON WRITING #46: Richard Bausch


I don't teach writing.  I teach patience.  Toughness.  Stubbornness.  The willingness to fail.  I teach the life.  The odd thing is that most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point.  When you feel global doubt about your talent, that is your talent.  People who have no talent don't have any doubt.  It's figuring that out and learning how to put all that stuff behind you and just do the work.  Just go in and shake the black cue ball and see what surfaces.
