Writing Tip — 48


When you think about the path we have chosen by becoming writers, we really don’t have true vacations from our work. We are always thinking about what we are writing, sometimes stealing moments we should be spending with our family and friends to fix a scene or make notes for a new scene. I try to take breaks from my writing and editing, but my fingers start to itch if I’m not doing something writing related. Even if I take time to pay Guild Wars 2, my mind is only partially on the game, the rest of the time I’m thinking about my work. How can I improve this scene? Should I remove that scene? Do I need more back story or do I need to cut some out? Even when I”m doing chores around the apartment, I’m running character dialogue through my mind, imagining what they look like and what they are doing while talking.  Then I think is this particular dialogue needed?  Writing is s year round profession, that never leaves us no matter what else we are doing.  We have to learn to adjust our lives to make our writing path clear.

May the words ever flow!

  1. No vacations? Isn’t that the truth. I’m already planning where I’ll sit and write on vacation in Maine.
