The Writing Trap

book stack w quote

What’s the trap?

Getting stuck in a rut…

Writing the same story or character

over and over and over

again

just because it “sells” or

it’s “what my fans want” or

“it’s all I’ve ever known.”

As writers we need to give ourselves permission

to try new ideas,

genres,

concepts,

plots…

otherwise our creativity and our craft suffers.

Just because you try something new

doesn’t mean that your fans won’t like it too,

nor does it mean you have to tell them about it…

You can always release new ideas under a psudenom

or as yourself

but with a different publisher or

on a different platform.

You just might surprise yourself

and

bring a new take to your standard bread and butter.
