Obstacles in Writing

Writing a novel is a strange experience, start to finish. Moments of euphoria — a character does something unexpected, you attain extra depth in a scene with one well-placed word, or a scene is easier to write than you expected — intersperse with moments of disdain — a character's dialogue falls flat, a scene refuses to come 'alive' with detail or action, and you lose motivation.

The Second Self

In addition to the physical entity that can shake your hand and talk to you face-to-face, I also have a "second self" — the one that you're interacting with right now. (Although I have to admit that perhaps interact isn't the right word, since I may or may not even know you've read this.)

This "second self" concept is explored in an interesting piece at TED by Amber Case, which you can watch below.
