OCD -like symptoms in writing look a lot like insecurity. Do you write and rewrite obsessively, let’s say, more than two or three times? I wonder if that’s not because the writing was ‘forced’ in the initial stage?
There have been times when there have been two or three or more rewrites. They typically start with throwing the original away and starting over.
I would say it has a lot to do with forcing it the first time around. It is actually not a good idea to force anything, unless of course you have a tight deadline and only need to make it technical and understandable. Creative works can be destroyed by force however.
Right on. I think it’s accidental too. Even the softening of a tone of the voice of a character can make a huge difference in inferred meaning. It is SO critical.
I really enjoyed talking to you too, Laurie! I hope we are ALL very successful selling our books! I have no idea what’s selling, just keeping the fingers crossed. “:)
Best day to you! Thanks again, and have a wonderful day! It’s been my pleasure!
