A4 Sometimes we can explore our own fears and write them into the story to see how the character deals with them. Writing can be good therapy!

A5: If you are writing, you're doing more than most that say they want to write a novel. If you finish one, you're doing >90%. No matter where you are in the process, embrace the chaos, up & downs, it's worth it. You are a writer. 🖤

I tend to write and develop stories in little bursts, and I rarely take the time to enjoy what I’m doing in the moment. I should really enjoy it more.

A5. Not matter how hard it is, go for it. Thats my writing motto. Its ok your story is weird or different, You will find an audience. Just love what you write and the rest will follow.

A5: For me the best way to enjoy this journey is to find people to walk with you! Friends who also love to write are my best cheerleaders and they efforts to keep writing help me keep my own motivation.

I’ve always considered round 1 of revisions to be fixing the bad stuff, round 2 to be honing the good stuff, and then any rounds after that to be a mixture of both as the story gets more and more precise.

2: I would love to work on balance, continually. At least for this book (and most likely, my next), I write in 2 POVs. I want to make sure they're each given ample time in their arcs.

A3: Yeah, when I was dropped by my old publisher, I had a four-year hiatus from publishing something. I really couldn't write for a bit, and it got to where none of my stories made sense.

A5 Depends on the story. Though overcoming fears gives a helll of a payoff especially if it coincides with the climax of the story.

Make someone else do it! 😛 Seriously though, I’ve been trying to change the way I see editing. It’s making me a better writer. It is.

A5: the word confidence makes me think of a false sense of superiority, which you can definitely have at any stage. However, I’m a pessimist, so I can’t say I’m the best person to answer this.

a4: If i'm hurt by some criticism, i'll step away from the piece for a day or two to get some distance, than return to it when I'm less emotional. It also helps to think of your readers as like, a teacher; they're just trying to help your work get better!

A5: Don't force your journey too much... have a goal, but don't be afraid of detours, and know which opportunities will help you when they come. You never know what will happen, but you can steady yourself mentally so that you're ready when they present themselves.

A3: I think it builds tension and immediacy, and gives a chance to examine a character's back story and motivations.

Q5: Best advice for struggling writers? Let yourself feel what you're feeling. Just like you can't jump from age 13 to age 30 (except in the movies), you have to go through the process of learning to write better. So let it happen. Don't try and skip a step.

A2: Comparison is the killer of joy! Honestly learning and continually reminding myself that I am ME and no one else—there’s not a timeline that everyone fits into and others will always be ahead of where you are—keep your eyes on your own paper!

A3: Definitely, a bad Beta experience made me put a stop to writing one of my fics. For months I’d left it untouched until this year I looked at it, and said you know what the Beta was actually right. And I said, what they said isn’t gospel but it was true.

A5: Writing is not a complete process. Even experienced writers learn new things on a regular basis. Some parts of the learning process don't end with experience, but improve over time. And since this is the last one, I'll say: Write. Keep writing no matter what.

To expand on that, Ive seen people bullied into acknowledging someone as an inspiration when it was not true because their work was similar. Don't do that to people.
