INCH BY INCH

During the past month, I’ve made progress. Unfortunately the amount remains minuscule because I want to be more meticulous incorporating my editor’s advice.

Over the years, as I learned more about writing, my fascination with the process grew. Initially, once the birth of the story arc occurred, I thought my innate writing style would flesh out the story. In retrospect, I exhibited the naivety of a “blooming novelist”.

I now realize writing a good, compelling story involves numerous elements. Tackling these components requires less spontaneity and more focused creativity. Using this methodology I’ve rewritten several chapters, but instead of flowing onto the page, my words pour like molasses. The result: my writing became more engaging. A goal I hope to achieve for my entire novel.
