Any professional writer, particularly when writing fiction in prose or screenplays, will tell you that it is not always easy to create good stories. I think this is especially true if you don’t have an outline, but then I’m not a “pantser” by nature. However, even with an outline, it’s easy to write your character into a situation in which you have no idea where to go next.
Part of deciding what to write and publish involves thinking about who you’re writing for. Even though writing is a personal process, a professional writer doesn’t create work in a vacuum. The whole point is to develop a readership or what many would refer to as your tribe.
This week’s video is the third I’ve done about writing tips. In this case, I focus on whether one should write for “the market” or focus more on developing your own tribe or readership.
It’s a question every writer hears. “Where do you get your ideas?” Or some variation on that.
The answer, of course, is The Idea Store. Not to be confused with IKEA. 🙂
