Most writers worry about finding their voice.
I worry about finding my story.
Of the six plus novels I’ve written, only one sticks with me.
I started my writing career writing non-fiction—stories from my life that came easy and usually bringing emotional results. I have yet to find that level with my fiction.
So I am praying and waiting and taking stabs at starting and stopping new stories. It makes me wonder if there is a way I can combine what I know into a story format.
Yesterday, I started reading my favorite author’s latest book. Already she has sucked me in and I am attached to her characters from page one. I want that kind of story—one that resonates with who I am and what is important to me.
Let me ask you some questions. Have you always fallen in love with your story from the beginning? Are you always satisfied with your results that you’ve written the best story you can?
