The first one...FINISH the story.
First, what is the story? How do you get the idea? For me, it started with a dream. (I think I've mentioned before I have some pretty nifty dreams.) Still, an idea, or even a dream is just a start. Its the rest of the story that must be told that's the hard part.
I've found that I have to have a rough plot, a map ,so to speak, of where I am going. I've tried winging it and it doesn't get anywhere, just very clean floors. (Yes, I suffer from procrastination at times....) I really envy those that can write a story on just a glimmer of an idea. Do you do that?
So far so good, I've gotten farther in the last week than I have in the last two months. So my questions for you this time are:
- Where did you get the idea for a your current story?
- How do you write? Plot or wing it?
- How are you going to achieve this goal?
I am going to keep on at it everyday, even if it is a just a sentence or two. That's better than what it was before...nothing.
The New Year is here, so are my new goals! :)
