How to Beat Writer's Block and Make Your Writing More Creative

The only way to become more creative is to force yourself to do it. It's like starting a fitness routine: You'll loathe it at first, but eventually, flexing your creative muscle will feel good.

How to Find Your Authentic Voice

When I was in elementary school, I declared that I'd be a writer. By high school, though, I was sure I'd go to law school. That too, changed over the years. In college, I had a professor ask me to consider switching my major to English because she enjoyed my writing so much; it would be a "waste of time" to pursue anything else. I wondered if she was high. (To be clear, I hadn't yet declared a major, so, perhaps I was high. No, really. Maybe I was. It was the late '90s and I don't need your judgment.
