I have written many different stories. I have written so many that I dare not write their names in this blog since I do not want to take up the whole page with story titles. Despite this fact I have only published three of them and only one is still in the market as you read this.
Why? Because I made the pain staking decision that many of my stories were either too bad or not ready to get out in the market. I know it is hard to abandon your stories since our stories are like our children, but sometimes it just has to be done.
When I first started writing I thought a writer had to finish their story. But when you think of all the books you read, hopefully you are reading a lot of books, some of those books you don’t finish. It isn’t because you were lazy. It was because the book lost your interest for various reasons. Well, I am here to tell you that the same thing happens when I write. Sometimes I lose interest in what I am writing and it isn’t because I become lazy!
Sometimes a story just isn’t meant to be published or sometimes it just needs more work. The point I am making here is that you don’t need to force a story if you feel that it isn’t right. Trust me, even though it may feel that there is a limit to your creativity that just isn’t true. The important thing is to just keep writing.
