Happy New Year!
I am excited cause I have started writing my novel. 🙂 I have decided to not apply any rules at this point or to exercise an editing focus at all – yet. I am in creation mode and I’m enjoying the fact that it is flowing cause I am allowing it to be what it will be… 🙂
I decided to implement Hemingway’s method of finishing the narrative every day when you want to keep going and are still excited by it, he said at this point put down your pen. If you leave the well with some water left in it the next day it will be full again and fresh and you will look forward to it and long to write more. This will mean the narrative will remain exciting to you as a writer and therefore will maintain its energy for the reader as well. I can testify that this method works! It is definitely keeping my energy and my creative focus remains captivated by this narrative.
I had learned already never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
ANYWAY APART FROM THIS HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! MAY PEACE REIGN THIS YEAR AND MAY YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL YEAR. 🙂
Thanks for reading 🙂
