It has been an educational day for me, and it’s only 3:30. The main thing that I learned is that I have a lot left to learn. One of my writing buddies is reviewing my story and he keeps asking me questions about my story’s premise, character motivation, and the believability of my character’s actions.
Now, instead of continuing writing, I am back to the planning stages. I know that I can do this, so I am going to read a book he recommended by Orson Scott Wells, a book on writing erotic romance I chose, and another called Instant Fiction that was required reading for an online class that I can not participate in yet.
My point, for those of you who are like me and only beginning to write is not to be afraid of admitting that you don’t now enough yet to accomplish your goals. Aquire the education you need and try again. Maybe, if one particular story is giving you problems, you could set it aside and start another.
That is what I’m thinking about doing right now. I think if I try a short story I will have less problems. There won’t be as many conflicts or characters to imagine. I will not quit.
