So well said.
I promised my students that I would tell their story. The secrets are all out now. In 2009 I taught teatro at Cesar Chavez Academy in Pueblo, CO. My teatro students had been studying Los Vendidos by Luis Valdez and learning protest songs about the Delano Grape Strike, like No Nos Moveran.

This, and so much more:

"In order to be taken seriously as a writer, I buy into the (false) notion that I have to write serious things."

What I needed to hear:

"[S]atisfaction in a creative career is a very good way to stave off burn out."
Writing advice online is generally geared toward the new writer. It makes sense -- most recipes online are catered to people who can cook but who don't have a stable bank of techniques on which to ...

All of the above, right?!
What is your writing routine? What does it look like when you sit to write? Any special rituals? I am so glad you asked. It's really pretty great. I sit at my computer, and I check Facebook for, like, ten minutes. Okay, haha, twenty minutes. And then I write. Sometimes I outline, sometimes I do ...

Not sure how I feel about this:

"The few books that publishers invested heavily in sold; most of the rest didn’t. And the blockbuster became even bigger."
I’ve often enjoyed snarking at James Patterson. I’m not laughing now. Because I’ve come across an item from the New York Times outlining at length the harm that James Patterson’s tactics have done to the American book world. Not just by debauching public taste. But also by forcing the revenue structures and channels of publishing to
