Over My Head

“A writer should always feel like he’s in over his head.” Michael Cunningham

That’s not hard to achieve! So as I work on my new writing goals this year, I’ll keep in mind that an accomplished writer (Cunningham’s novel The Hours won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Pen/Faulkner Award in 1999) thinks that heady feeling is what makes good writing compelling. Cunningham writes about the suffering, joy, difficulties and happiness all contained within the writer’s life in an article in O, The Oprah Magazine.
