My name is Rachael. I teach sketch writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. I act in things sometimes. I also write some things here and there and make some videos for the internet and that general malarkey. I go to the movies once a year, and I drink whiskey often. You can follow my quirky internet ramblings on Twitter @rachaelmason.Ask me everything I can post something for you, but seriously, just start your own blog, I mean seriously.
Hemingway spoke a lot about that kind of daily struggle that every writer goes through. And that’s the grind: You’re never sure, as a writer, that you’ll really reach the peak. In the middle of a project, you never know that the journey will be worth it. I think when I was very young, I thought that when I got older, I’d reach a stage where I’d be confident in my writing—where I could just sit down every day and happily churn it out. That doesn’t happen. It never gets any better. You’re always unsure, and you’re never know whether your work will turn out how you want it to. Vikram Chandra writes about the lessons learned by reading Hemingway. (via millionsmillions)
