What’s up all you beautiful writers out there?
I hope this video is finding you well.
Whether you are well into National Novel Writing Month 2020 or not, maybe you need a little extra boost for your writing session today.
Maybe you’ve felt either a great connect or a disconnect with your storyline.
Let’s focus on that real quick, because we’ve let out some frustrations over the last couple of weeks, and it’s time to look on the bright side of things.
What do you love about this story your writing?
How is it changing you as a person, or as a writer?
Has it become something more than you could have ever dreamed?
Writers and creatives are often known to be their own worst critics, and sometimes it’s hard not to be.
Spend some time focusing on everything you love about your work in progress, then get write on in to your daily session.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t really feeling my story too much at first. It was kind of slow going in the beginning, and it was really forced. I tried so hard to connect with it. I thought of everything I could do, tried everything I had done in the past to make that connection, but nothing work. It really shook me, and right at that halfway mark, I seriously considered DNFing my own book.
But then, I don’t know, something just clicked. I got into a scene I liked, and the characters started making more sense. Things got better, more exciting, and it’s almost like the moment I got over that little hump, the floodgates are just about to unleash. Now, I’m really excited about where this book is going and what’s going to happen between this point and the end.
I’m coming up into the last act, just one more chapter until then. The climax is on the way, so, even though this a short book, everything that things are building up to is about to happen. I guess so much of me wishes I could have started this from the end to the beginning like a Benjamin Button type story. That’s not a bad thing if you’re any type of writer, to write whatever section of the story you want at whatever point you want to. It’s just not as good an idea when you’re posting the whole thing daily 🙂
