I'm writing a novel--do I have a clue what I'm doing?
Do I have a clue what I have to learn?
Researching fiction is a thing, who knew? In my head fiction is well fiction, meaning not real. Why would I have to research that? I learned quickly how wrong I was about that.
Showing vs telling. I’m great with dialogue-always have been. But descriptions? Not so much. I see it in my head, so I think everyone else does.
Each character needs their own personality. What? Yes, I’ve read books since before kindergarten, but I guess I never paid much mind to how different each character is.
I’m sure this is just scratching the surface of all there is to learn, but at least I’m on my way-taking one step at a time.
