Writing Tip #17
You may be good. You may be great. But that doesn’t mean draft one is the one.
Writing is just like acting.
In fiction, you must completely embody your characters. In non-fiction, you must install your subject into yourself. In poetry, you must become your idea in its purest form.
At it’s heart, writing is becoming someone or something else in the exact same way that actors become different characters. Except, for writers, the script is still on the inside fighting to get out.
Timelines are hard. If you don’t like numbers, they kind of suck. And you especially don’t want to make a mistake because then your story loses all credibility and continuity
like with Glee and Finn’s age and father. So be extra careful. May I suggest using a calculator?
