Most fiction writers haves experienced low times in their career where rejections, low sales, and reviews sink them to the bottom of a deep, dark pool. Admit it, we’ve all been there, and oh, the things we tell ourselves.
We think about quitting, and we might for half a day.
We have a good cry, but it doesn’t solve a thing.
We invite our friends to a pity-party.
We attempt to tell ourselves that our lagging career is not our fault. Then comes the list of who to blame.
We consider applying to McDonalds as a Big Mac flipper.
But the best choice we writers can make is to embark upon a journey to discover how our writing can take on a unique style, voice, and marketability while entertaining readers with an amazing story. Isn’t joy and satisfaction why we spend hours of time in seclusion devoted to story?
This, my friend, is why I want to ask you 12 questions that might cause you to completely change your writing style.
