When bleep happens

The easy part of being a writer is having fun making my characters go through various bleep situations and eventually achieve their obstacles but real life doesn't go like that because I have come to realize I cannot control people in reality the same way sometimes I cannot control my characters when they demand the arc of the story to progress a different route. I have decided that I want to be published and in order to get there I have to train myself to focus which coincides with my previous post gaining discipline. So I hope to have established a better regime and get on track with writing and also not letting stress of other people affect my productivity. Keisha Martin

A lot of people don't realize how much discipline comes with being a writer, and how much work it truly is. Fortunately, with all the information out there, and a wonderful writing community, there are so many people to help us learn and grow. Good luck with your manuscript!

What an excellent goal. Yes, writing does take a lot of discipline and hard work, along with a splash of talent perhaps. HA, on controlling people in life vs controlling characters in stories. You'd THINK it'd be easier to control characters, but they take on a life of their own sometimes!

Carol,
Thank you so much for regularly commenting on my random post, I am honing my own splash of talent, and also negotiating with my characters to cooperate a tad lol.
