Tuesday blog: The Three Minute Writer #1 – vBlog

Well, here is the first of a new video blog (vBlog) feature here on the Stories I Read, Stories I Tell blog. In episode #1, I take a couple minutes to consider the proper role of the Internal Editor, as I see it.

Check it out…

Three Things to Take Away:

  1. The Internal Editor is an important aspect of who we are as writers, but that editor can sometimes take over and hinder our writing.

  2. Even though it’s hard, for some of us the best thing to do is to put that Editor away while we work on initial drafts.

  3. By putting the Editor away, we are free to let the story go, let the characters speak, let the words surprise us. And it’s okay, because there will be plenty of work for the Editor to do when we begin to revise and refine our work.

Hope you enjoyed this first attempt at a vBlog. Happy Writing!
