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?
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.
