For the past 48 hours I have been a little uptight because my book wasn't going the way that I wanted it to. But like I said in my previous post, that I intend to finish it no matter what. I am so glad that I chose not to trash the whole story because I was watching one of my favorite T.V shows on Netflix which is a nightly ritual before bedtime and it inspired me to take my story in a different direction without even having to change what I have already written. No I am not copying someone else's idea lol, and no I will not name the show. But it's a good one.
I used to have a really bad habit of trashing my own work if I was depressed about something. I will never do that again. When I think of all the stuff I created that wound up ripped to shreds in the waste basket I want to scream. Please don't ever destroy your own work, even if it doesn't sound good yet. The key word is yet. You can always go back to it at a later date after you have gained some inspiration or came up with new ideas from a dream or something someone told you or something you watched on T.V. Then all of your hard work wont be a lost cause. And lets face it, being able to come up with any idea; even a bad idea is hard work. Until next time...
