It’s said that the blank page puts a feeling of dread and horror into writers. This can be true, but only if you have a lack of ideas. I seldom do.
I tend to get asked a lot “where do you get your ideas from?” Well, what do you say? I think it’s best to tell them the truth that I don’t really know, but that’s seldom the answer they are looking for, as they don’t seem very excited when I tell them.
I consider myself fortunate in that I have many stories I want to tell, enough to keep me busy for many years – and I get ideas for new stories on a regular basis. So the problem becomes what to write first, and how to find the time to do it?
The best way I have found is to make steady progress, a little a day if that’s all you can do. It will add up! If you get a chance to go on a bit of a writing binge, that can be good, too. But doing too much at one time is hard to maintain, and I think constant progress is where it’s at, even if the word counts are lower per writing session.
This writing observation has been brought to you by the letter Y. Because.
