Every Story Starts With One Thought

Every year, millions of books go unwritten because writers are waiting to formulate the perfect storyline before putting pen to paper. Sound familiar? If it does, don’t wait any longer. Get yourself in front of your laptop, now, and start typing because the perfect plot, the perfect characters or flawless manuscript will only come to you when you do.

Every story starts with one thought. My The Guilty Woman novel started when I saw the sentence “OH GOD! OH God, oh God, is he dead?” in a book I was reading. Taking that one line, I got myself to my laptop and ran with it. I wrote whatever came to mind. From those few words the storyline began to formulate, and seventy-thousand words later, voilà.

Now, get to that laptop and start typing. Start to lay the foundation for a book. Your book. Write. Write, and write some more. Read what you’ve written closely. I guarantee that when you do, the book you were meant to write will start to come together with ease. The outline will flow, the plot and characters will come together, the scenery will formulate in your head, and before you know it, you’ve realized your dream.

Godspeed!

Writing Is More About The Journey Than The Destination

Writing Is More

The more time you spend writing, the better you become. Add reading to raise your writerly IQ, and things will go right you.

Don’t hurry the process along. Writing should be more about the journey than the destination. The joy of sitting down to a blank screen and crafting something that’s beautiful or moving or funny or heart-wrenching or even just average is what it’s all about. Enjoy yourself. Don’t stress out about writing the perfect novel. The best way to fail as a writer is to devote all your time perfecting. Let your creativity flow, and your story, your characters, and the plot will fall in place.

Creative success requires vision and getting yourself on that keyboard, and getting to work is what’s important.
