The tricky thing about writing isn’t putting the words on the page.
It’s about crafting them to make sense.
We can write many words quickly, but it doesn’t make the sentences very good.
The same goes for the story. The story is straightforward. A character wants something, and something stands in the way. They take action, which creates a reaction, and eventually, they get what they want, or they don’t.
The hard part is finding your way through it. It’s about crafting a unique journey with exciting characters and powerful prose. That takes time.
Storytelling doesn’t need to be complicated, but it requires hard work.
