What does TRAC mean to you?

I only need to look back to my days as the rapping prodigy of my fourth grade science class to realize that writing is a lengthy but rewarding process. As any young rapper comes to know, writers block can be an incredibly frustrating experience; fortunately, I have always had people around that I have been able to talk to for guidance during these periods where the writing process seems to go nowhere. That glorious moment when writers block has finally been defeated is the reason I love writing. The TRAC program is an awesome opportunity to reach out to fellow writers as they work to overcome this oftentimes frustrating process. Being a TRAC fellow involves offering the sort of guidance that can help others to arrive at that moment that makes writing so gratifying.
