I used to run a column, occasionally writing one myself, about writers and their creative process in Written By, (and before that, The Journal) the Writers’ Guild of America, west monthly magazine. Over almost ten years, it gave me enormous pleasure to hear and see how other writers faced the world, both the external one and their internal one. As long as the column was connected to their creativity or process, they could write on any topic they chose. We (the magazine editor, Lisa Chambers, and I) tried to give them the space to say what they wanted with minimal notes or editing, something that happens so rarely in show business. I loved doing it, and the people who wrote columns for us loved the opportunity. In this section are my Muse-ings columns, along with my own Muse-ings, other columns and writings.
