The Prime Writers’ Daily Writing Resolutions: each day in January we are featuring a real writing goal that one of the Prime Writers is working on this year.
Today’s resolution is from Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle:
I have resolved to trust my gut instinct. If something within my writing – plot, character, setting, dialogue – doesn’t feel right, that’s probably because it’s not. If it’s niggling me, it’s likely to niggle my agent, my editor and ultimately, the reader.
And no procrastination. I’m aiming to get down to writing as soon as I’ve dropped the children at school, not after eighteen cups of tea and an hour on social media.
