Ain’t that the truth?
We all have great ideas for stories, ideas that are brilliant and just what we need for a potential bestseller. However, just when we think we’ve nailed our next piece of writing – what happens? Our minds go blank, or if we do manage to start writing, the plot’s all over the place. This is a common phenomena amongst writers and one of the most frustrating side effects of our profession. How or why, is a complete mystery.
Be that as it may, what’s the solution? Well, it’d be great if we could get everything right the first time, but most of us don’t. What we need to do, is what the sign above says and get it down on the computer, or paper, if you prefer, and worry about polishing it later. Too many of us, I suspect, go over and over the same passages , “polishing” and refining, and as a result get stuck because we don’t want to strain our brains thinking about how the story should progress. In other words, we succumb to that other ailment that besets writers: procrastination.The above points have all been made before many times, and will be again, I’m sure. What’s important is that we take heed and do what we do best – write.
