There is definitely a call to think things through. Impulsivity isn’t what I’m throwing at you here. But there is a time when you’ve got to stop thinking and do. Sure, doing is very scary.
I can totally relate. Even today, after having written 40+ novels, I still get nervous sending my agent a new book, or a new idea for a book.
Is it a good enough concept?
Will she like the characters?
Is the writing good enough?
You get the idea.
But sooner or later, I need to stop thinking and do it!
And yeah, she doesn’t go for every story idea I have. That’s ok. I’m glad she’s honest about things. Sure, it kinda hurts that she turns away one of my babies, but it’s onto the next. God keeps giving me story ideas, so I will continue to write them.
Stay strong, my friends.
