Marianne Maguire My favourite part of being a writer is, being able to transport myself to another world. When I write, the vision is so clear in my head that the story feels like it is happening around me. I dream about it, and not just in my sleep, it becomes an obsession until I get it all out on paper. That is how I truly know I love what I do!
Marianne Maguire I honestly don't think we writers get blocked, so to speak, I think of it as our characters are mad at us and won't speak to us for a few days. In that case, I tend to surf the internet looking for something that will trigger a conversation to start in my head. It eventually does but somedays are harder than others. My own self doubt and confidence will play a part from time to time and that is harder to deal with.
Marianne Maguire Write, every stinking day! Keep writing and reading and write some more. Even if you feel stuck, or not sure where to start or go, put down one word, then another until you have a sentence, paragraph, page, chapter. It is not easy but nothing worth it ever is, you can do it!
