Wherever we are in our writing journey, we storyweavers are wannabes. The unpublished writer’s greatest desire is to be published and the published writer dreams of being a bestseller and having his/her work duly recognized.
Yes, I too would love to be a bestselling writer, but I also want people to recognize me as a good storyteller, one who leaves the reader with something to think about after the story is finished.
But before publication, we writers do our fair share of weaving. It’s not easy to take character, mood, plot, point-of-view, setting, theme and combine these into something that becomes a spellbinding tale. We have to take each strand, apply our knowledge and individual style, and then plait them together in such a way that our readers will think it worth their while to take a 100-300 page journey with us.
What dreams do you have for your writing career? Are you gathering the necessary tools that will ensure you can weave your stories together seamlessly?
