Writing Resolutions

Something @authorbrittanywang mentioned in one of her videos was a piece of advice which has haunted me ever since hearing it : Start with something you don’t love.

I wish I had done that, as I love The KeyMaster and I want to do it justice, but circumstances are against me. My dream has always been to publish this autumn, but I’m having to face the possibility (rather, the reality) that this won’t happen.

So, my writing resolutions, faced with this possibility (reality), is that I shall finish this edit of Book 1 then shelve it and move onto Book 2 and all the prequels I have planned. Which is no bad thing, plus things will be in order for when circumstances do change. I shall also focus on a story that I love but isn’t as dear to me as The KeyMaster is. Inspiration is already striking, which I’ll take as a good sign! I think I might also try Wattpad once more.

Have you any resolutions?

  1. With something you DON’T like? That’s an interesting perspective, definitely thought-provoking. But I guess if you can write about something you dislike, you certainly could write about things you do like! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, definitely thought provoking. It initially struck me as odd, but the more I’ve thought of it the more sense I see in it. I think if you start with a project that’s not too special then when you come to tackle the project that’s really dear to you, you should be better placed. More mature, more experienced etc.
