Don’t talk about what you’re writing. It drains the power you need to finish the story. Telling people about your unfinished stories gives you a false sense of accomplishment because writing is communication, and if you communicate your ideas by talking about them, you lessen the drive you need to write them down.

I write whatever I want, like poetry The New Yorker wouldn’t dare print. Visit me at denisesheltonwrites.com.
