So I started writing a novel. I need something creative to do this winter, I have to stretch and push myself a bit... blogging comes all too easily, and honestly I don't know if I am very good at that either but it's time to expand.
I started and then it seems that I get stuck, I get petrified, start thinking it's silly to try and write a novel, who is going to read it anyway? I hate reading poorly written novels full of fluff so I am afraid to be the writer that writes it! But then again if I never try... see my dilemma?
Any words of wisdom? What do I do? Just keep writing? Do you have a novel end in mind when you start or does it come to you later? Do you develop your characters ahead of time or do they grow with your writing? Thoughts?
