Hey writers, this is your casual reminder that there is no shame in being self-indulgent and writing what you want to write!
If you want to write a superhero vs giant robots story taking place in outer space, that’s totally okay! If you want to write unhappy endings it’s 100% valid.
If you want to write a certain part of your WIP that you’re not at yet right now you can do that too! If you want to go off and explore something that’s not immediately relevant to your project, that’s fine and valid.
Give yourself permission to write what you like, and to have a lot of fun with it!
Don’t only give yourself permission to write what you like - give yourself permission to write the way you like to write, too!
I was super nervous about posting paragraphs in Iorie’s story at first bc there is a huge emphasis in the community about doing dialogue-only writing. This isn’t a bad thing!! If that works for you, perfect!!! I’m very happy for you!
I, however, found it way too limiting. I found myself longing to write actions as well, and when I began doing that, I never loved the story more. And in return, y’all could tell I loved it and loved it too ♥️
Write what you like and how you like it!!
