A Year of Yes: Writers, just tell yourself a story

The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.” ~Terry Pratchett

As I begin to add more layers to the skeleton of my second novel, I keep coming back to this quote by the iconic novelist, Terry Pratchett. Every time I get stuck and I don’t know what happens next, I close my eyes and I say these words out loud. It works for every part of the writing, editing, and revising process. I’m just telling myself the story, the richest, most inspiring, and truest story that I can create.

 

I'd love to know what you think of this post! Please leave a reply and I'll get back to you in a jiffy! ~ CRA
