The weaknesses

December 8, 2017

 

 

I recently made a list of my weakest faults as a writer:

 

1) may suck

2) tendency to overly complex storylines/too many themes

3) I like the sound of my own voice

4) bad choices= not, at some point, thinking about what an audience might actually want to see

5) not getting enough out there/collaborating

6) enough true details (i.e., going for the big before nailing down the small)

 

I then realized that these are the faults (except for item #1) that most writers have.

But there are tried and true fixes for all of the above (except for item #1):

 

1) may suck -- can't do much about that

2) tendency to overly complex storylines/too many themes --- structure

3) I like the sound of my own voice -- edit/cut

4) bad choices= not, at some point, thinking about what an audience might actually want to see -- get feedback

5) not getting enough out there/collaborating to know if all of the above a problem -- get more feedback, readings, etc... 

6) enough true details (i.e., going for the big before nailing down the small) -- re-writing

 

Fairly straightforward, really.
