Talk to someone.

Writing something big? Wanting to?

Find someone you know. Anyone.

Then talk to them about it. Give them your pitch for it.

Then let them ask questions about it. What have you not thought of? How can you incorporate it into your pitch and/or story?

Can they tell that you’re passionate about it?

I’ve never had anyone look at me like I’m some lowlife who will never get anywhere when I tell them I’m a writer, when I tell them what I’m working on. Why? Because I’m as passionate as you can get. They can tell I’m enthusiastic about my work and love to tell people about this big thing that I think everyone will love. It’s infectious. People I tell about my stories always want me to send them to them.

Why? Because I love what I do.

Sure, I procrastinate and worry, but believe me when I say that my projects are my babies. They are my children, and I can brag about them just as much as any parent can about their honor student.

Are you at that point yet? Can you talk about your projects like they’re your children?

If not, why not? Can you see yourself getting there someday? Why or why not?

When in doubt, write more.

That’s some personal advice directly from me to you.

(Looking back at this not long after posting it, I realized it sounded kinda bad. I can honestly assure you that I’m the only person working this blog and will link if it’s not my content originally. What I was getting at is that not all advice has to be full of reasons and explanations. Sometimes the best advice comes directly from the heart in the form of a simple sentence or two that require no extra help. And that’s all this was. Sorry if that caused anyone confusion. I’m pretty sure there’s no one else awake who reads this blog, and no one’s commented, but as much as I like to emphasize clarity, I felt it wrong not to clarify. And now I’ve defeated the whole purpose of simple, direct advice. In any case, I am so happy you’re still here, dear readers–make no mistake of that. 🙂
