Personal Obstacle

I have posted another article and thought I’d share my own experience on the advice within.

The coffee drinking I have done, 2 cups and have churned out about 700 words this morning.  I stopped over thinking things to the nth degree and just wrote the current scene that I had started last night.  Some paragraphs will need a re-write, the sub plots and the multitasking involved went well simply because I just wrote presently.  A big obstacle for myself was thinking:

“What will I get my character to say?”

“How will the other character react?”

“What if it starts going in the wrong direction?”

“How does this link in with the main plot?”

“Is this actually relevant?”

“How will I feel at the end?”

“Am I enjoying writing this?”

“What if this doesn’t work?”

And it just got to a point where every question I had just blocked me from writing at all.  I’m taking my own advice (Thank you Tan!) and am feeling confident I know the whole story so am motivating myself that way today.  It’s all in my head and it now just needs to make its way onto paper, well Word for now!





"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
