Animated Meat is a blog about writing. But, it's also not about writing. It's about the things that this writer has to do in order to stay on track and produce.
My name is Ed Richter and I am proud to say I am near the end of the second draft of my novel. It hasn't been an easy process. In order to get to this point, I first needed to fail at writing another book. By fail, I mean spent five years of my life typing away at something that I was never able to complete. Seriously.
I've had a lot of realizations over the last few years and I've found some things that really worked for me. I'd like this website to be a place where I can share those realizations.
As a creative type, I've found that I really need to keep my sails full in order to keep moving forward. I'll be sharing some of those things as well. Writing is a lonely profession. I have to get my motivation wherever I can. Life is for living.
Thanks for getting to this part of this blog entry. I promise that I'll put some things up here that are meatier than this entry.
