Write Training

Deanna Hoak has posted the text of an interesting writing chat with Jay Lake, in which Jay shares some very lucid advice for approaching writing the same way one would a sport or martial art, working out different sets of muscles, and the need sometimes to start over when moving to a different skill set (short form to long form, editor to writer, etc). Jay's got a tremendous work ethic, and his advice here mirrors my own experiences (first doing a short-short story a day in my mid-twenties, then doing longer stories one a week later on, then a few novels a year sometime after that). Well worth checking out.
