Getting the words down. posted 09 April 2004 in Writing TipsGetting the words down. by Sovin Nai, Site Administrator

What usually happens to me is this:

I start with an idea I feel is brilliant, and I'm totally pumped about it. I spend a few days or even weeks thinking about it and fiddling with it, then start writing. I get a couple of typed pages into it, take a break, and come back and read it. Sometimes I think it's okay and sometimes I think it's crap, but I never really like it. Then I pick up a book and do some reading and am blown away by the authors writing. I feel there is no way I could do my storyline and world justice, so I just stop writing and stick to reading.

That is the general pattern, and I don't really write much because I always feel that way and It just isn't worth it. My favorite part is coming up with plots and worlds anyway. view post
