This is an exciting idea, and I love the depths to which Dr Sue reaches to answer these questions. It's enriching and relieving to hear these answers to questions that plague me (and probably a lot of us) too.

Katharine Weber

There is nothing quite like this in blogland, either -- what a welcome new resource for serious writers. We all struggle.

Clea Simon

Thanks for doing this, Dr. Sue and Melisse -- I suspect it will become an invaluable weekly fix.

Susanne Dunlap

Fabulous blog, MJ and Dr. Sue! I look forward to more.

toni

What a terrific resource. Thanks to both of you, MJ and Dr. Sue, for this.

Paul

You're really on to something with this. I would highly recommend a website devoted to the psychological challenges of writing. We need a place to talk about this. It's a void that needs filling. It could be huge.

Gina Hyams

Thanks, MJ and Dr. Sue!

Kate Maloy

Dr. Sue must be very brave. I'm picturing thousands of writers in every stage of the process, at every level of success and failure, all crying HELP! (Great blog, MJ, and thank you for this marvelous new feature.)

At Buzz Balls Hype one learns the solemnity of kindness of strangers and deep reflections ...

BTW, Speaking Of Picturing: As publishers know, a book is judged by its cover, and particularly by the inside back flap of the dust-jacket. As book reviewers know, the author photo positioned there powerfully prejudices their reading and they must shield themselves from its dangers like Perseus avoiding the deadly gaze of the Medusa. As for book buyers, we know that the encounter on the back flap is a significant first meeting, and will tell us instantly whether this is someone whose company we want to share for the next however many bedtimes.

Kerry Madden

Dear Melisse and Dr. Sue,
What a wonderful idea and addition to the column. Thank you for such candor and honesty and hope.

All best,
Kerry Madden

Dr.Sue

Thanks, all of you! I hope to make this a forum/discussion, as Paul suggests, so please keep coming back and commenting!

I'm just about to start on my fourth novel, and the doubts that 'Biting my nails' raised are all there for me too. Can I write another one? It should be easier, because I've done it three times before, but will it be fresh, interesting, worth reading?
I'll stick the new territory quote where I can see it, and with the right mental attitude everything should work out fine.

Susan O'Doherty

Simon, I have made good use of the very helpful and practical advice on your web site, especially the sections on novel writing and getting past blocks. I'm glad I could return the favor!

Simon Haynes

I have a standby trick I use when I can't think of new scenes to write - I lie down in a darkened room and let my brain wander. With no outside distractions my imagination goes to work.
And I'm glad you found my site useful.
