Welcome to another installment of Writing Myths Monday. I hope this Monday morning finds you well. Let’s jump into this week’s myth.
Writing Myth #16 – I’m waiting for my big book idea to hit me.
As writers, we write. If you sit around waiting for ideas to find you, you’ll be waiting a long time. Your big book idea will reveal itself when you least expect, usually when you’re writing. That’s one reason I like writing short stories. One short story I wrote inspired me to write a middle grade novel on the same topic with an expanded cast of characters.
If I hadn’t been actively writing, I’m sure that idea wouldn’t have occurred to me.
Until next time, be happy, stay safe, and good writing vibes into the universe.
As always, please follow me on Instagram @beinglaurakmarshall , for the fun of it.
The Big Book of Writing Exercises, Prompts, and Blockbusters is Coming Soon – stay tuned for release details.
