About a year ago, I decided to write an addiction memoir in the style of Denis Johnson’s Jesus’ Son (my favorite short story collection of all time and a huge influence on my nonfiction).
After finishing the first draft of the addiction memoir, which ended up at about 300 pages, I lost all momentum. The editing process overwhelmed me.
I wrote about how a local writing workshop, Writing Workshops Dallas, gave me the tools I needed to get back on track.
I’ve already sold 4 chapters of the story to december, J Journal, The Doctor T. J. Eckleburg Review, and Another Chicago Magazine, and I hope to sell more before querying agents and trying to sell the damn thing.
