Writer's Tip - What Set Your Heart on Fire?
Simplicity last. If you can tell a good story, the rest should take care of it's self.
from The Writer's Little Helper
James V. Smith, Jr.
Some people also say write what you know. I can't say that I necessarily agree with them.
I believe your imagination can take you anywhere.
A better thing to say is write what set your heart on fire.
I write things in my head every night. Funny maybe, but it's how I put myself to sleep.
There are stories that I love but they never make it to paper. They don't have all the necessary elements of a good novel.
Is that to say I didn't enjoy them?
When I sit down to write a book, I think about how much time I'm going to invest in the story. I either need to love it or I'll soon be sitting it aside to write something else.
Why waste the time, write what works and a story that you love.
Have a great weekend,
