It occurred to me that I write better when I’m in the mind of my character. When I try to write from a prompt or a short story I find myself stumped, but when I put myself in the mind of a character then it flows like water and it ends up being longer then anyone wants to read. Blogging for instance feels completely foreign to me, when I read other blogs I feel I seriously lack creativity and depth.
So I’m challenging myself to practice by writing short stories (even if they suck at first). Stories that begin and end in oh…500 words or less. Wish me luck.
