What is Lonely Victories?

Lonely Victories is an occasional newsletter about the writing and reading.

I’m Hurley Winkler, a writer who’s endlessly fascinated by the creative process. I love learning how artists of all stripes get up, get motivated, and do their work—day in, day out.

Each issue of Lonely Victories focuses on a different topic relating to the creative writing process. I’ll provide helpful tips to help you with your writing, interview authors who know a heck of a lot more than I do, include feedback from subscribers like you, and recommend some stellar books.

The writer Annie Dillard famously said, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” So join me in learning more about how writers spend their time.


You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
