It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
I’ve recently made it to the middle of a story I’m writing and it didn’t take long for me to realize that I didn’t know how to handle keeping the story going. So I looked to one of my favorite author’s on writing for guidance.
When you are just starting a new project, one of the first things you must decide is which point of view to use.
I can’t believe another week has gone by already! And with the bombings in Boston, the explosion in Texas, and now one of the Boston bombers being killed, it’s been a very dramatic week. I’ve been keeping one eye on the news and one eye on my homework for days now.
But now it’s Friday, and in case you don’t know, every day I scour the internet looking for articles that are helpful to me as a beginning writer. When I find something, I will share it over Twitter. Each Friday, I will post what I call a link round-up of all the helpful articles I found that week.
What you want is practice, practice, practice. It doesn’t matter what we write (at least this is my view) at our age, so long as we write continually as well as we can. I feel that every time I write a page either of prose or of verse, with real effort, even if it’s thrown into the fire the next minute, I am so much further on.
So what is everybody working on?
No need to be too specific…I know many of us don’t like to talk to much about the details. How about just the type of writing, and genre? I’d love to know what kinds of writing you guys are working on.
As for me, I am working on a post-apocalyptic thriller. At least I’m trying to. LOL With school, I haven’t been writing as much as I would like. I need to practice making a schedule and sticking to it.
How about you guys?
Hello, everyone! Time goes so fast doesn’t it? I’ve been meaning to get a post up here for weeks now but I just kept getting overwhelmed by schoolwork. That also means I haven’t been writing though. (Aside from class papers, that is.) But even though I am not writing, I still have ideas and inspired moments about the project I have going. And I always have ideas about future projects that I know I won’t be able to get to anytime soon.
