I love reading Alexander Zoltai’s blog, Notes from An Alien, because he always has alternative viewpoints on the art of writing. Take a recent share he did from an author who is losing her joy of writing thanks to the tangled mess of publishing.

Writers generate words, but with all the new tools available to us, writers also market, edit, format, lay out, publicize, create graphics… it can be overwhelming.

How does one person do it all and still keep the creativity flowing? I’ve recently experienced this burn out myself, so when I read Vivienne Tuffnell’s The Loss of Joy I could empathize.

Read Tuffnell’s post here and see if you too feel like the joy of authoring has ebbed.
