There’s a difference between an idea for a story and then writing it. It’s two different processes.
The Idea Guy is that loud, vibrant “WHAT IF!!!” moment. It comes at you, rushing the idea—it’s heady, exciting, seductive.
It’s the next part that’s harder. The writing. The waiting for a sentence, a word—anything—that will push your story forward. It’s important not to get discouraged with this. It’s a hard, slow climb, and the Writing Guy is a whisperer. He’s not going to yell the story. So, you’ll have to sit quietly, listen, and wait. And wait. And wait.
But in the end, when your story’s done, the waiting is worth it.
