Let’s be Brave

writebravely

Do not cower in a corner. Unless a character you are writing is cowering and you are explaining what it is like – Don’t cower.

In other news: Writing Day 10 – I think most of us want to write well. It’s a great deal more difficult to be brave if your writing is drivel, but it is so important to believe in what you are writing about. If you don’t believe in what you are writing, what would compel you to continue to write? Even if you don’t write well right now, the technical factors can be worked on. The way you write now will go through changes as you go through changes! If you don’t believe in what you are writing about, you may come across as if you were completing a school assignment.
When I was in 7th grade, I spent the summer writing a story about runaway teens. I had no idea how to write a story  “correctly” (still don’t, I’m not a fiction writer). I didn’t know any runaway teens, and I’m not sure where I got material to create the story. Perhaps I wanted to be a runaway teen – I have no idea. What I do know is that I loved what I was writing so much, I entered it into a contest of some sort. I did not win, but I was brave. I’m quite proud that I believed in the story so much that I wanted others to read it.  I’m not sure I would be as brave today. I need to take a note from 12 year old me.
Move forward writers.
Let’s be Brave!
