 Lauren Kessler joins us May 18th to talk about “The Ten Stupid Things Writers Do To Mess Up Their Lives”

Writers are renowned for acts of self-sabotage, from extended experiments in procrastination to epic bouts of self-pity. Isn’t it time to get smart about our writing lives and stop undermining our best efforts? (That’s a rhetorical question.)
