Writing is Like Homework
I wish I knew who to credit for the above as I'd like to thank them. It struck a nerve as writing has been a struggle for a few weeks.
Writing is never easy, if anyone says otherwise they're lying. Writing is always hard work. I have a story planned out, plotted in detail and know where the twists and turns are going to happen. Getting it down onto metaphorical paper has been another matter, with stop starts as I try to work out what's wrong. I couldn't figure out the why?
Took time out, including spending far too much time on social media ~ she laughs as she calls it 'research.' Reading more books, I have four on the go at the mo. Then the penny drops. I've been writing from the wrong point of view (POV), and I'm trying to make it dark, too dark. It's time to lighten up! Now there's no stopping me. Phew *as she wipes forehead.*
