|The best writing comes from the head, not the heart|
It takes a bit of both surely! for novels at the very least!
I’m quite instinctive. I know what I want to write. I tend to throw a few ideas around and add to it as I go. Then come hours and hours of endless revisions.
I also live with my characters, crying and laughing with them. A little bit of madness, perhaps…
We all have our own little ways. I tend to agree that there is indeed a lot of misguided comments on Twitter and Co. Do this, do that…
Everybody makes comments about all the ‘rules’. I don’t have any particular rules. I just write and write, until I’m happy with it. To me, it’s not the amount of words you have typed that matters but the content and some people seem to lose track of that.
I’ve always followed my instinct, it seems to have served me well.
