“A writer writes always.”
It’s a favourite quote of mine from the movie Throw Mama off the Train starring Billy Crystal and Danny DeVito. It’s become my motto as a writer. I think I should stick to it and finish the half-barely finished stories.
I have this sneaky habit of having a story idea, starting to write about it but then putting it aside because for starters.
a) I get bored with it
b) I get stumped. I am unsure of how the story progresses next. I guess this is a classic case of writers block.
c) I write fragments of the stories as they come to me and I have no idea of how to piece them all together. One time I wrote the ending first, but I couldn’t figure out where the beginning starts or if a story even has a beginning, but merely a starting point.
d) I start to hate it because it just gets on my nerves causing me to get frustrated with the piece I am working on.
e) I forget about it.
f) I focus too much on the characters to the point that I am not sure how to do them justice. It’s hard to explain.
I’ve only really finished one story, but it still feels like I am not done it at the same time. I always wonder is a story ever finished? Oh wells I hope you enjoy my writing and reviews are always nice.
I'm a journalist in waiting and story teller at heart.
