Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
And we’re revving up IWSG Day to make it more fun and interactive! Every month, we'll announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
April 3 question: If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)
Wow - what a thought-provoking question!
I think (at this moment anyway!) that I would use my wish on the final chapter.
Tying up loose ends can be such a challenge!
In my romance stories, I tend to be a little cheesy when I write the first draft of the last chapter.
In my dementia project - which is a combo of memoir/narrative non-fiction and self-help advice for caregivers of those with dementia - tying up the entire book and ending with encouragement and hope is proving to be a little challenging as well. I think I'm almost there, though!
Over all of these though, I think I would spend that wish on writing the blurb that will pull in ALL the readers! 😀
How about you, where would you spend that wish?
