Write what you care about

You write because you care about writing and you care about what you write.

I’ve met so many people, heard so many stories that have made me sit up and say WOW. Really! You survived that? How? Genuinely I am in awe. Though of course I never write about them. Their stories are not mine to tell. But what ever you have a gut feeling to write about, then write it!

Trying to decide whether you story idea is a good one or not, is another matter. There is no way of absolutely being sure if the idea is a good one until you try it on for size. Of course, it is said, originality is key, especially if you are trying to sell your story – publishers, agents etc., are generally looking out for fresh ideas that jump off the page. To be frank – being original is hard to do. However, putting a different slant on an age old story is not without merit.

Whatever you do. Please keep writing – and if you’re not happy with it, keep it safely tucked away for another day. It is important, you wrote it after all, so you must have cared about it at some time. If you would like any more information or share please don’t be afraid to drop a note in the message box and I will try to respond asap!  Take care.

      I think someone got a bit upset about the title. I'm glad you didn't. My aim is to ensure the writer knows their subject, rather than just doing a heap of research. Research is great, but it can leave the writing a little cold (this is just a view).

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service? Kudos!

    • manager

      Checking with my tech guy and apologies - will try to resolve, must be very irritating.

  • Cerys

    • manager

      Yes, in the main they really are. Thank you for sharing! I did have to take my blog down for a while. I was horrified to see vile posts that were dark and totally nothing to do with writing. So thank you again, for being one of the great ones! Oh, and can I be cheeky Cerys - would you consider sharing this link with your friends? It would be awesome if you did. http://www.co.uk/2021/09/secrets-shame-and-shoebox-l-b-griffin.html?m=1 thank you.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    • manager

  • Lamont

    obviously like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality nevertheless I'll certainly come back again.

    • manager

      Oops, spelling mistakes? Apologies! I rarely get the time to proof read because I'm in the midst of writing another novel and that's taking the priority at the moment. My editor is asking for my galley. However, I take note - and will try to do better. (here comes a shrug and an oh dear).
