I read an article in the latest RWR about writing to one's strengths. It's a great article. Everyone should check it out.
It got me to thinking. What ARE my writing strengths? And how do I incorporate those into the things I DON'T do so well? And what are those?
And how do I find out? I mean, I am definitely a contest slut. I've got judges sheets on all three of my manuscripts - bunches of 'em. And of course, being human, I tend to look at the negatives, the things they DIDN'T like and obsess about them. How can I fix this? What is wrong with it? Why can't I do it?
So now, I've looked over the sheets and tried to find the things the judges DID like, the consistencies. Once I get a bead on those, I think I can use them to make my weaknesses, less weak.
So, after much research, here are my strengths - my dialogue and my love scenes. I can work with that.
How about you? What are your writing strengths? How can you incorporate them into all aspects of your writing.
Only the good stuff here. What things do you do REALLY well? Inquiring minds want to know!
