iPhone 5, Pen And Notebook On Wooden Desk

British author Tim Lott wrote an article for website The Guardian, and the piece is his reaction to a poll that says that 60% of Britons want to be an author (you can find Lott’s article here). Now, no writer – whether published or unpublished – needs to be told that writing is not as fun as it seems.

Writers know this kind of feeling, being torn between wanting to write and wanting to throw the laptop out of the window and forever get…

Ballard, with a brief quote about the writer: We live inside an enormous novel… The fiction is already there. The…
