The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group Website opened. The admins are putting together an anthology to celebrate, The Insecure Writer’s Support Group Guide to Publishing and Beyond. You can post your submission today (please go to the IWSG Site and enter your link on this page afterwards) or email it to the IWSG or Alex. The topics are writing, publishing, and marketing.
I’ve already sent in my submission, so today I’ll just talk about writing insecurities.
I pulled back last month to write more, and of course received a ton of formatting jobs instead.
Which means I am still working on story number three of this book. And I ended up having to do a lot more planning than anticipated. This one is about the ghost, and the back story needed some work to make it plausible. I’ve worked out the kinks, but I realized that the back story had to take place a little further in the past. Which means I’ll have to adjust what I’ve already written and set it back a little further, too. (The other two stories are also set in different times, so it will fit.)
The greatest challenge with writing all four stories is that, like all of my stories, they were each inspired by a dream. (And we all know how much sense dreams make!)
Does anyone else have that same challenge? Making a dream story into a real story?
