Short Story / Fan Fiction
A popular literary agent said that a good writer only believes the critics.
I have decided that I'm not putting anything on Booksie unless it royally sucks. So if you think "The Endless Days of Summerland" sucks, you're correct, it does. You have no desire to steal the sucky fan-fiction I wrote, right? Mission accomplished.
I'm going to take a break from Booksie for awhile and focus on writing my book. When it's ready to be submitted to publishers then I plan to return here to read and comment on other's writing.
I have written an article about Writing Tips - check it out please and tell me what you think.
I am now writing at least 4 hours a day. I no longer feel fear when I sit down to write. All I do is start and the ideas come. I also spend 1-4 hours reading per day. I don't judge my work as bad and then give up any more. I know that what I first write will not be the finished product. Although I don't have a huge vocabulary, I do have a fairly decent vocabulary and a thesaurus and that is sufficient. I also look at "Word of the Day" at Dictionary.com every day.
