Writing Update: If I Could Write As Fast As I Read…

If I could write as fast as I can read I would probably have about over one hundred books published right now.

Hey Love Bugs,

It’s me again with another post. How many of you writers out there are actually readers as well? I know I am. I love reading. That’s sort of where my decision to write came from. That and the fact that my imagination is sometimes way out there. But back to my earlier statement… I love reading.

I love the idea of being able to get lost in a book and I wanted to be able to do that for other people. Now I’ve only been actively pursuing a career as an author for about three years but I can not tell you how many books I have read during that time.

I can fly through a book with such ease but when it comes to writing I hit so many walls. Why is that?

If you know what the story is going to be shouldn’t it come easily?

For example: The book I am currently working on is apart of a series. I have thought long and hard about this series, for years, that I know details that is supposed to happen down the line, like way down the line, yet I am having trouble getting through book one. I just don’t understand it. I may be putting too much pressure on myself but I feel like I should be getting through this book with a little more ease.

I know how this story places out, from beginning to end. I even told someone what happens throughout the entire series and was told that I had something really good with twists and turns and surprises. That made me feel good and let me know that I wasn’t wasting my time but I just want to kick myself for not being able to complete this first book.

So that is why I say if I could write as fast as I could read. A pipe dream I know but it’s nice to dream right?

Well I am going to go sit in front of a nearly blank word document and try to write.

Until the next time… Love, Peace & Chicken Grease.
