Writing A Novel – Mistakes I’ve Made
Many successful authors will tell you that writing about characters they have created is in part, writing about themselves.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been doing daily exercises of compiling a stack of 3 x 5 notecards full of lists of various self-study questions and topics.
Today is no exception. And again, whether you’re writing a novel or not, this can be most helpful an exercise.
Take out a 3 x 5 notecard, write “WMHIM” and number it, and date it, and then below, start a list of the mistakes you feel you have made in life. When you fill up a card, take out another one, label it and keep going. Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. And like I’ve repeatedly said, this can be helpful to one whether they’re writing a novel or just trying to get a better handle on the person inside.
