An Embarrassment of Riches

A lot of people assume that writing is a solitary art, but the truth is they couldn’t be more wrong. The act of writing itself may be solitary and can be blissful for that very reason, but there are always people helping the writer along, giving them the gifts they need to succeed. This month we’ve heard a lot of personal stories about the greatest gifts we’ve received as writers, and I was surprised at the amount of breadth and depth both that the posts contained. Below are links to any you may have missed, or in case you want to revisit them.
