It’s been a long while since I’ve said that I’m feeling confident about my writing, but it looks like today’s the day for inspiration (finally!)
After a surprisingly chilled out weekend, a passage in Stewart Ferris’s How to be a Writer really spoke to me (seriously – read it). It simply said, keep writing.
The past few months I’ve been so wrapped up in planning a new story and making sure every single character, plotline, subplot and scene is planned to perfection before putting pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard as the case my be – that I’ve lost sight of just writing.
So ontop my planning, I’ve decided to start some mini projects – retellings on famous stories, with brand new characters, aspects and social issues, and I’m really enjoying it. Looks like I needed to take some of the planning pressure off myself to truly start falling in love with writing again.
Know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but might take a slightly different direction with posts from now on and use it to discuss my writing – an attempt to keep me on track – with the odd post about books I love and reviews thrown into the mix.
One thing’s for certain, it definietly feels good to be writing and blogging again.
