Writing Advice With: Nicole Sager
Today I am so pleased to share some writing advice from the author of the Arcrean Conquest trilogy, Nicole Sager! :o ) Nicole has been a very sweet encouragement as we have been creating this blog.
Thank you Nicole for being such a blessing and for sharing with us. :o )
Me: Remembering when you were first starting out, what was the most important thing you were told, or learned along the way?
Nicole: There are three important things that come to mind:
1) Don't try to push your story forward, but pray through it and wait on God to fill in the blanks;
2) Don't be afraid to add/delete portions of your work that just doesn't fit - God has something better planned;
3) Think through your character and their setting - write how they would respond/act/think, and not how you would do so.
Me: If you were to start over, what would you do differently? (Providing that you still had the knowledge of writing you do now?)
Nicole: Haha! Formatted my pages with double spacing! I tried to have my pages completely formatted right at the start, but that really took away from focusing on the story :)
Thanks again Nicole! :o )
Blessings in Christ,
