Lovely post from one of my favorite bloggers. Check out her page, she is quite funny. 🙂
Below is a quote from Ira Glass which has really resonated with me. Ira Glass is an American public radio personality and the host and producer of a TV show.
Lately I have been doubting my writing strategy of simply writing as much as I can. Thousands and thousands of words. Every time I write I know that it is ok but it feels like it’s falling short / not quite there yet. So I pull my stories apart and look at what didn’t work. To date I have had various issues with plots, lifeless characters, conflict and story arcs. I then start writing again. This is how I learn.
People think I am nuts. This year alone I have clocked up 65k words. This strategy is hard, punishing and at times makes me question myself.
I read this quote and everything fell into place.
