Today, the Universe seems to be spot on when it comes to writing. Every writer has their own process. Some of us draft “dirty”–simply getting the bare bones of the story down before going back to flesh it out by adding descriptions, dimenstions to the characters, and dialogue. Ah yes. The 3Ds. These are the seasonings a writer addes to the stew their imagination has cooked up. We write it. Edit it. Format it. Publish it (or our pulibhers do). The tiime comes when we hold the finished product in our hands (or on our ereaders) and stare, with a tiny bit of wonder. Even after 50 books, I still get that twinge of OMG! I DID THIS! The Universe sums it up like this:
Something that might add some sugar and spice to your daily comings and goings, Silver, would be to constantly remind yourself, “I created this, because I wanted to.”
Prepare to be empowered,
As well as, Silver, “I can change the heck out of it, too, whenever I want.”
See? Writing, editing, and publishish. All right there in a nutshell. Too bad it’s not that easy. This isn’t necessarily restricted to writing. You cazn apply this to anything you do–arts, crafts, cooking, decorating, liviing. What have you done lately that gave you that tingle and you did a little happy dance and said with pride, “I did this!”?
You should be proud of every book, Silver. They’re all awesome and you did that. I have those 17 books and I am proud I did that, but I haven’t felt an ‘I did that’ in a long time. I did get an attaboy from the boss for thinking outside the box, even if what I was thinking wouldn’t work for the situation. So go me. yay.
Attaboys are always good, as is thinking outside the box. That’s an exercise authors sometimes forget to do. LOL And thanks for kudos. I feel the same about your books. Those are awesome stories that I deeply enjoyed and yet I couldn not have written them. Cool how that works, huh? 😉
