This is the type of blog post that I’ve been wanting to write, but never got a chance to. I have an idea of what I’m going to write about, it’s just a matter of getting started.
You can’t really put your ideas down on paper unless you’re the exact same person who wrote it. That’s why you have to ask a hundred or more people to write your story. I’ve found that if I’m really honest and don’t hold back, I can come up with an idea that I can put down on paper.
I like to think of it as a form of therapy. Ive started writing it not because I really know what Im going to write about, but because I want to be able to help others who feel the same way.
People who write stories with their own ideas and concepts are called writers, and they are very often the ones who make the best literature. Because they are able to get their ideas down while being themselves. So if you are a writer and have an idea you want to put down, just write it down. Then ask people to help you.
After my first death-looper was going to go through the motions to write every day, my body started getting tired of it all. It was getting really heavy. I wrote it and left it on the floor. I didn’t want to write it and then go make it up. It was a horrible mess. I had no idea how to get it all out of my mind. That was too much. It was like I forgot about anything.
A writer writes and writes and writes.
So, I’m going to start with a few keywords. I want to get people to put it down, to get the gist of it, and to find out how to do that.
Writing every day is a fairly standard practice for most writers, but a lot of it is more about the process than the outcome. The process is to figure out where you want to go with your work, figure out what you want to say, and then put those two things together into a coherent whole. The outcome is usually something a writer will be very proud of and that is usually that the work is so good that people will take the advice and put it down and make it their own.
As a writer, the idea of generating concepts in your head at every single moment is just a little bit of a strange thing to be doing.
