Diary of a bad writer – Week 24

March 12th, 1:00pm – Still receiving comments on my last short fiction. That’s great. Question is what if I fail to generate the same buzz on the next story?

March 12th, 2:30pm – I found the answer to my question in a quote from Ray  Bradbury – yeah, just write.

Fail writing

    I know what you mean.
    I actually don’t worry about not generating as much buss as my previous story. I just write. But then… when there is less buzz, I do get deflated for a moment.

    Yes! I LOVE this quote! And I have felt that similar fear with blog posts. How on earth will I ever “top” that? Maybe I will, maybe I won’t, but I’ll never know if I allow my writing to become frozen by fear.

      That quote says it all for writers! So simple, and to the point. Thanks for commenting KaylaAnn.

        I invite you to visit my last post: “A 20% Chance Then; Now…”

        I think it’s inspiring. Plus, you sometimes incorporate medical stuff into your work, and it’s got some of that too…

    I’ve already failed then as I’ve not even started writing (or rather, I stopped creatively writing many years ago and haven’t had the heart to pick it back up). Brilliant quote! And very true… don’t let fear of what response you may or may not get for your next piece, it’s writing it that counts, and your own thoughts on it.x

      If I worry about response, I’ll never write. Sometimes I need to remember that. Thanks for the comment Caz.😊
