Authenticity in Writing

Although all of us authors/writers must do some research in writing our stories when we do not know enough about a certain subject matter, the value of critiques from various other writers is that you learn vital information you may have missed.

You are always learning something new, and with that crucial information provided by your critiques, your story becomes more authentic, which is what we always want for our fiction works.

I gained knowledge in a particular subject this morning to help make one of my character’s hobbies more realistic and believable.

Fellow writers, I hope you are able to connect with critique partners to help strengthen your stories.

Thank God for critiques/feedback!

A Space to Express Your Thoughts

Dont trade in authenticity for approval

 

You know what makes blogging wonderful? It gives you a place to share and express your deepest worries, experiences, beliefs, opinions, and good events in your life.

You can reveal your true self, write from the heart about things in the world that are troubling to you. Whether readers agree or disagree with what you poured out and shared isn’t as important as being able to write about events knowing you’ve done so straight from an honest place in your heart, mind, and soul.

It takes courage to do this, even on a blog, and I hope I continue to have that ability to do so.
