Feel more like reading than writing these days. Very Tired. Still helping out a friend and that is ok. She is a priority for me.
I read on Pinterest, all the advice about writing and honestly, all it’s done is leave me confused and wondering. Some say one thing, others say something else.
So, I have decided that I am not going to read them anymore. Instead of helping, they are taking me away from the story I intended to write. I know the writers who post these helps , mean well but in the end, all it did was make me think I needed to do what they suggested to improve my story and it didn’t. Improve my story, that is.
I will write the story I want to tell. I will hire an editor to review it for me. I must write it the way I see it.
Has anyone else been here. I mean, wondering if you should redo your novel because of some well intentioned advice? My advice, read it if it interests you but don’t get caught up in all the different types of advice.
I think I did because I’m a first time novelist.
Today, I am uninspired. Too much going on.
Tomorrow, I will write. I have fit what I know of some of my ancestors, loosely into my novel. I am still at a dead end but hopefully not for ever.
If you’re Scottish, this is the month of ancestors. Samhain opens the doorway. I’m waiting to hear from them!!!!!!
I will resume writing more blog posts as I can and when the tiredness doesn’t overtake me. Just an aside, I do have a condition that causes extreme fatigue and sometimes more so than at other times.
I will hopefully be past this latest bout soon. Thanks for reading.
I’ve thought of posting pieces of my novel, almost done. Good idea or not?
