#WhyIWrite: Erin

Sometimes it seems crazy to be a writer. I sit in front of a computer for hours at a time, all by myself (well, except for Twitter friends, my cat, and the occasional coffee shop barista). It takes months to write one novel, and there’s no guarantee the novel will ever be published. In fact, I have spent years working on several manuscripts that will never be published. I’ve been rejected hundreds of times. I’ve given up sleep and social events to meet deadlines. I’ve battled writer’s block (and lost, badly).
