These are the two most helpful things I've found for assisting the writing process.
John Steinbeck says,
"The simplest way to overcome this is to write it to someone, like me."
"In the first place, the nameless, faceless audience will scare you to death and in the second place, unlike the theatre, it doesn't exist. In your writing, your audience is one single reader."
Thanks for the reality check.
P.S- I've decided to address my articles to Walt Whitman.
