Because You Have To

How to Become a Writer (Hint: It Involves Writing)


Writing means writing. Wow! That is about the most Mickey Mouse that you have written to date. Congrats! Can we get a debate between you and someone who thinks writing does NOT mean writing?
I laughed out loud when I read what Corey Redekop said "When you're pressed for time, kill everybody off!"
I, too, did the 3-day contest this year for the first time and rushed into an ending. It was 10:30pm on the third day! As the old saying goes about deadlines: there's nothing like a hanging in the morning to make the mind alert.
@1: Go back and read the fucking story and then comment, please. Most aspiring novelists/poets/what have you do not actually write; they merely aspire.

@2: I also recommend No Plot, No Problem, by Chris Baty. It's the guidebook for National Novel Writing Month, and it's full of great ideas like murdering everybody in your book.
That's a big 10-4, good buddy.
