Lucky for me I don’t consider myself a web designer, or I would demand my money back for this site. It’s not gonna win any awards, but it will be something I can tinker with when the words of my story don’t move along. Which I am good at I tell you. Finding distractions is a talent I have to a fine degree. So as far as advice goes I say.
Don’t force it, if writing has to be forced at that moment, maybe it isn’t time. Some “Pros” in the field say you need to write 8 hours a day to succeed, and maybe that’s true. I would say though that by my standards of the deal. I am a success. I finished my story I can hold a copy in my hand, and others have read and enjoyed it. I don’t need the money, don’t get me wrong I could use the money, and holding that first royalty check felt good. It didn’t break the bank, but I am a paid Author.
The only truth I have really hear about how to learn to write, is to write, write, and write some more. I have a satchel full of notebooks with story notes written in them. Steno pads of stories, most of which are utter trash, but I have them. The first full story I remember was in grade school, undoubtedly around 1977, about a space war in which the all the starships were in the shapes of different dog breeds.
That one I have no idea where it went, but I would love to be able to read it again. So as I have told my children and have been told myself, if you have a story to tell, write it don’t stop and don’t let some one else tell you to.
