I'm still fluctuating wildly, depending on what book on writing I read. Every new book seems like a solution to all my problems. Then I read yet another new book, and THAT becomes the solution to all my problems. And I cheerfully try out all writing techniques they describe.
I hope at one point I'll accumulate enough knowledge to understand that there is no formula, only form, and that I can stop freaking out about writing right and JUST WRITE. Until then, I guess I'll keep reading.
