Last October I attended a writers conference. The theme was 'The Fight to Write'. The talks encompassed dealing with rejection, turning negatives into positives, using humour in writing, and the joys of writing, and even of re-writing.
I decided to take this theme for my blog because I constantly struggle with writing . Sometimes a story doesn't go well, I can't transcribe my idea to the page for some reason, no matter how clear the mood, tone and atmosphere in my head - it ends up as dull prose. So I get disheartened and throw it away. At other times, ideas fail to materialise, and at the thought of sitting down and writing anything a hundred other things to do turn up.
Of course, the other big fight - which most, if not all, writers experience - is the fight to get published. Sometimes it seems an impossible task.
Though always worth fighting for.
