I had to run around the field many times. I remember trying to memorize Shakespeare so that words that began with sounds I stuttered on s, b, etc. A writing constraint. You try to write without certain letters.
A few books have been written as long lipograms. Notice the tenses here — you have to survive childhood first. Without it I would not have been driven to write, to create rhythmic sentences easier to speak and to read.
A fascination with words thrust me into a vocation that has kept me aflame with a desire to communicate. As a little girl, I hoped my stutter would let me into the secret world of animals.
As an adult, given a kind listener, I am privy to something just as elusive: a direct pathway to the human heart. This is not a call to arms against voice, which communicates something important about writing and point of view. Something new to read and think about.
Another lens to look at the world through. Steal Like an Artist recommends you live and breath the artists you like.
Learn what makes them tick, reproduce their own art for your own consumption. Then branch out to the three people that your favorite artists most learned from. You have your own style and you can make your own contribution. They make you a more rounded individual and they are creative sources that will inspire you in your art.

Share Your Work The author says there are benefits in being unknown and obscure, such as the total freedom of failing and experimenting. Eventually you want to reach a certain level of fame though. The best way to do that is to share everything you do. When you share you will receive some harsh criticism.
