There is no right way or wrong way to write a story

Period.

There are tons of formulas out there for writing.  When/where/how you should plot a book, let it arc and how much you resolve.  You can write according to these “rules” until you go crazy with it…or you can be yourself and write your book for YOURSELF.

There is no need for a second Steven King.

You won’t write the next twilight.

Harry Potter has already been written.

Those belong to someone else.  What the world wants is YOUR book.  I say give it to them.  Write it backwards, write it in blocks, skip around, write one word at a time from beginning to end, plot the hell out of it or wing it.  Whatever gets your book written, write it.  There is no right way or wrong way.

I thought you might want to hear that.  I know I need a reminder every once and again.

Have a great day and happy writing!

    • Thanks Krista. No two of my books have been written or edited in the same way. There are some things I will never do again and others I am still fine turning, but each of them was written how they needed to be. Good luck with your writing.
