Persevere. Emulate fine writing. Find a workable pace and stick to it. I write in a variety of forms — short fiction, the novel, the essay, poems, translations from the Chinese, and I try to emulate the compassion Eudora Welty advises of her subjects. When history grabs you by the throat, find a way through in writing.
