John Ling ends with a quote that sounds like it came out of Galaxy Quest (Shows how much of a nerd I am, huh!):
What are your writing habits? Why do you write?
I tend to write in terms of 'scenes', not necessarily 'chapters'. Once a 'scene' is completed, I'm done for the day, and I will spend the remainder of my time polishing up what I have written. I don't usually find it productive to simply bang out thousands of words at one go, because two-thirds are likely to be eliminated anyway. Admittedly, I am fussy. I tend to under-write, rather than over-write. My reasoning is: it's better to leave readers wanting more, instead of wanting less.
Writing for me has always been less of a choice, and more of an compulsion.
Keep pushing on, keep persevering, don't give up.I haven't gotten round to reading Dark City 2 yet but I do have it on my TBR pile. Also, my name appears on the back cover. How cool is that?
But for what reason? Beats me!
