There is so much advice out there on how to approach writing. I’ve read over a hundred books about writing and there is occasionally some commonality in these books. However, it is the multitude of differing advice and approaches can be very confusing and less than helpful.
So much categorical advice.
It’s the only way to do it type of advice, that makes you feel so inadequate, because in spite of the big name attached to the advice it does not ring true to you.
So much conflicting advice.
Do an outline. Let it develop organically. Build a world first. Start with character. Story in king. And on and on and on.
The only really consistent advice I have found harps back to what I said last time. If you want to write then the key, central, essential thing you must do is WRITE.
