I’m curious about the moments in your life when you made huge decisions about your writing life. To first share your work, to first send it out, to apply to a writing program or conference, to talk to a famous writer. To take a year off to write. To take a mindless job that wouldn’t impinge on your writing time. To quit writing. To switch to non-fiction, or to fiction. I’m asking because a few writers have asked me lately: should I continue, should I stop teaching, should I go to journalism school, should I write for magazines? I guess what I’m asking is:
Did you ever come to a fork in the road? What did you do?
