Writers ever since writing began have had problems, and the main problem narrows down to just one word—life.
STRUGGLING THROUGH A BOOK YOU’RE JUST NOT THAT INTO

Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself… It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.

A Word About Research vs Imagination

writing-questions-answered:

When you’re writing a story, it’s important to understand the difference between things that can be researched and things that must be imagined. Part of being a writer is being able to imagine things that don’t exist or which you haven’t experienced. If you’re writing about something that isn’t real or hasn’t happened yet, there isn’t really a way to research it. The best you can do is find things that are similar to what you’re writing about and research those things. For example, if you’re writing about a giant spaceship that’s a floating resort, you can’t research that because it doesn’t exist. However, you can research cruise lines, resorts, and find out what other writers have done with spaceships. From these sources you can cobble together the details you’ll need for your spaceship resort.

Sometimes there are subjects you want to write about which are real but not definitive. For example, if you want to write about the emotional response of a girl who loses her legs, you can research the basics like “life as a double amputee” and “the emotional impact of disability,” and you might even find applicable personal experiences. But there won’t be one right way to portray your character, and as a writer it will be your job to figure out how the things you research will apply to your character. Whatever you’re writing about and however much research you need to do, remember that your imagination is going to have to do some of the work. That’s what being a writer is all about! :) <3

Write down things that interest you. It does not matter what they are. It matters that they interest you and that you are writing them down. In this way you are participating in the history of literature. Other people will likely not be very interested. Pay them no mind.
This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don’t consider it rejected. Consider that you’ve addressed it ‘to the editor who can appreciate my work’ and it has simply come back stamped ‘Not at this address’. Just keep looking for the right address.

The story is the only thing that’s important. Everything else will take care of itself. It’s like what bowlers say. You hear writers talk about character or theme or mood or mode or tense or person. But bowlers say, if you make the spares, the strikes will take care of themselves. If you can tell a story, everything else becomes possible. But without story, nothing is possible, because nobody wants to hear about your sensitive characters if there’s nothing happening in the story. And the same is true with mood. Story is the only thing that’s important.
