I want to leave you with one last advice, one that matters to keep your passion alive and encourage you to keep the hard work going.
Enjoy and experiment!
Beyond the difficult times, the roadblocks, you should always remember your calling and that you chose to be a writer (or that the muses dragged you to the desk and never let you go, but by now you know that befriending them was only a matter of time).
There is joy to be found in answering one’s calling and writing should be that to you, fellow writer! The amazing feeling of finishing a chapter, of coming up with a good book idea, putting together a satisfying structure…
The other thing is to feel free to experiment. You have time before your writing is available to all to see to decide what you want to do. The experimentation is part of growing and learning, of having fun with following your calling. Don’t hesitate to do it, whether it is something small and simple like a new secondary plot or something big as a new genre.
In the end, everything is a learning experience.
I hope that you enjoyed those writing tips and that they are helpful to you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me and I will gladly post an answer!
