Keep Writing


Posted by Jodi | Posted in From Bean Counter to Author, Some spare thoughts from a writer | Posted on 10-04-2018

As I write and share, I find there is so much more to add to what I already have. Each time that I ask for feedback, I get it. So the only thing to do is to take what I’m given and work with it.

Tonight I got advice that made sense. I was told, I need to do a better job of introducing my character to the reader. Who is she and why is she where she now finds herself? I know her better than I know myself, so I got busy and worked on the beginning of “Not Too Late Forever”.

I may never get published, but when someone gives me valid feedback, I take a good strong look at it and decide how to use it. So now I think that I have a better introduction of my character.

Now I need to spend sometime on my other story. I’m at a place with “Misty’s Magical Shed” that requires sacrifice. This is a story with three POV characters. The one who is talking to me now is a young shape shifter female. She is an orphan who doesn’t realize she has a family waiting to accept her into the wonder of their family love. That lack of knowledge and the carelessness of her unknown cousin will cause her problems. For now, she just needs to find a place to belong. Someone who she thinks she can trust is ready to introduce her to a situation that will cause more heartache.

So as always, it’s time to get to work on my writing.

Keep the coffee flowing.
