Rolling On And On...
It has come to my attention (like running into a brick wall) that I need to work at short stories. I simply cannot write a short story.
Well... I can. I HAVE.
I've been writing and working on my short story called "The Wicked One" for some time now. And I either need to set it aside until I figure out the details or I need to condense it down after it is written.
I have a thing about giving far too much information. My mom has also told me I have the gift of gab. I can see someone in the store and talk and talk and talk...
I feel the same way in my writing. I feel like I have caught up with an old friend and just keep going on and on about everything. A little more mystery would be nice. People don't need to know EVERYthing, do they? Even in writing?
I know I will get there eventually, that I will polish up this short story and things will be fine. It is the routine, the angst of writing, of starting that new story.
Oh! And I think I have figured out how to start my historical fantasy story... I can't wait!
Do you think you put too much or too little information into your writing?
