Surprised I’d say this? An obvious thing, no? Except we forget. I forget. You forget.
The truth is, if every day, as you go along your life, you allow yourself to be happy, your writing will improve.
You’ll start believing in it.
Your confidence will grow.
You won’t be afraid to have fun and to play (because having fun and playing makes you happy), and as a direct result of this you’ll make better story decisions, and your talent will bloom.
Don’t believe me? It’s happening to me now. And if it can happen to me, it can happen to you. We’re not that different, you and I. We can’t stop thinking up stories. It’s what we were born to do.
