"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed," said Hemingway. Epiphany! Your fingers scuttle to the nearest keyboard, locked, loaded, evocative and vivid language at the ready. With suave confidence you strike down on that first key. Then another. And another until you have formed your masterpiece. The joy! You reread your delicious words! But something tastes funny. "No, this isn't what I meant at all." and "What was I thinking?" and "My editor will have my neck!" Your zeal inverts to despair and your once-spurting passion trickles to a feeble drip. Writing hurts. J.S. Leonard hosts Bleeding Ink, a show that lunges into the minds of remarkable authors and related creatives. It's bent on aiding your writing journey, to inspire, boost confidence, offer writing techniques, bolster business acumen, build audiences and lead to publishing.
