Those of you that follow this blog will know that I mainly write non fiction.This is not to say that I don’t write fiction, I do…I just lack the nerve to do anything with it – at the moment.
But, as I have mentioned on here before, [a few times actually] I plan to do something about that this year.
My problem seems to be that I lose interest in my story before I get to the end. Why? Because I’m guilty of editing my story, as I write it. For some reason, I don’t feel able, as I routinely do with my non fiction, to produce a first draft. Needless to say, I lose interest in the story and it remains unfinished.
No prizes for guessing what I’m now working on. Those half-finished stories deserve to be concluded, at the very least. Then, when I’ve polished and perfected them, to the best of my ability, I am going to send them off to a critique service. I won’t do this with all of them…just the ones that I think are worthy of being pulled to pieces.
At some point I would like to put some of them up on here. But, only when I’m not such a cowardy custard! You’ve seen the video attempts LOL…I don’t want to add to the madness even further, with my nutty stories – just yet! I need to find and develop my style.
We all have a story within us; it’s just a matter of whether we can tell it.
Are there any other fiction virgins out there?
- Are you working on your works of fiction?
- How do you plan to improve your work and style?
- Are you a coward…like me?
So, thanks again for taking the time to visit and if you’re new to my blog…hello and welcome. Enjoy your Thursday.
Until the next time.
