Having run events for so many years now, it’s always interesting to watch the folks who are new to writing.
Some have an idea, but don’t know how to start off. Others need constant reassurance that they’re doing a good job. There are even some who fill every spare moment with writing classes and courses.
It’s not only inevitable that everyone will go through this process, but it’s necessary. All the experimentation allows you to figure out your preferences and dislikes. From my own perspective, I figured out early on that I like sending my work to publishers but entering it into competitions. I then worked out that I like to pen monologues or plays rather than novels.
If you do have that kind of energy, my advice is to use it while you have it. Bluntly, once your motivation goes, it might never return.
