I am fond of this phrase:
LET THE PEOPLE IN YOUR HEAD OUT!
This means don’t shut the story up! Nothing should get in the way of the story! Nothing! Writing involves the relentless pursuit of story to its expected (or unexpected) end.
What is the story saying or trying to say?
Don’t ignore it.
CARRIE almost didn’t get published until Tabitha King fished it out of the trash and told her overworked husband, Stephen, it was good.
Honor your talent. The world still wants to hear what you have to say.
In Love & Ink,
