A Bunch More Discussion Questions For Writers
I have been mostly talking to myself over the last four days, trying to make sense of some questions I have that don’t flat seem to have answers. Or at least not easy answers.
So on the idea I might keep this up, I thought for a short post tonight I would just toss out a few more questions that would be fun to talk about in coming posts. Again, just sort of talking with myself, but feel free to chime in with other ideas.
—Why is every writer I know in a hurry?
—Why are most writers totally incapable of planning longer than a few months to a year ahead?
—Why do so many writers want someone to take care of them? (This one just boggles my mind, but I run into it all the time.)
—Why are so many writers afraid to just write clean and one draft? And then release?
—Why do so many writers write checks for taxes every year when they flat don’t have to with just a little learning? And some courage to learn how not to pay taxes legally?
—Why do so many writers think they need a “story editor” or “developmental editor” or another name along those lines because they are too afraid to stand behind their own art? (Might have answered that question.)
—Why do so many writers just stop learning when they reach a few sales? (This would also be a fun topic about fear.)
I think I am sensing a theme… Fear.
So a big last question for this idea post… Why are fiction writers so afraid of everything?
Might be some interesting posts coming up. Stay tuned.
