In the Comparison
Some writers have to write five novels until they get published, some fifteen, twenty, thirty, while others only have to write one.
Some writers have a flowery style, while others have a simple style.
Some have a strength in grammar and structure. Others, their strength lies in point of view.
Every writer has to write their own stories. We can’t copy the work of another and we can’t pretend to be someone else. We write our best when we are true to ourselves.
As we saw in my previous post, every writer measures success from a different scale, so why compare ourselves to someone else’s scale?
Note: this will be my last post for the week. I need to focus on some ornery chapters. I’ll still visit everyone around the blogsphere and I’ll be back on Monday with a new post.
