Today’s writing tip is a simple one to hear but a hard one to put into action for a lot of us.
Take a chance and step outside your comfort zone.
Not for the whole book.
Not even for the whole chapter.
Maybe just for one scene.
Don’t play it safe and see where it takes you.
You might be surprised.
I just wrote a whole book set in a country not my own.
Can I go write inside my comfort zone again for a while now? 🙂
Not really. If I’m not stretching, I’m not sure I know how to write. Still, I’m at the point in the process when find myself muttering about finding an easy book for my next project! 🙂
Yes. You have a free pass. 🙂
We were watching something going on in Iceland the other night and I thought of you. I will always think of you and Iceland together.
I’m working on this right now. I was invited to submit a SF short story for possible publication in an anthology. I’ve never tried writing it.
I figure my entry is beyond a long-shot, but it’s been fun to explore possible characters and worlds even when I sit down to actually, you know, write, I become paralyzed with fear.
But I will get that writing done 🙂
