A bit belated, I’m here for the stats!
Last week I mentioned struggling quite a bit this year and even contemplating quitting. I wasn’t quite sure why I was having so much more trouble than normal, but theorized it was because I was hyper-plotting and focusing a lot on making sure each story had layers/depth/meaning. That may well be the case–this week was much easier, and I’m not sure if that’s because I quit plotting so heavily or because I found a new TV show to consume in mass quantities (Hannibal — oh my goodness).
I’m beginning to think that a writer should look at writing like people look at eating/exercising. The more energy you put out or burn, the more food you must consume. So the more I put out as a writer, the more I must read/watch/consume media-wise. For some reason reading short stories doesn’t ‘feed’ me like binging on TV does.
Anyway! On to the stats!
