Your writing is about choice
Choice defines us.
The choices your characters make—or don't make—define them. Even in circumstances beyond their control, how they respond defines them.
Your writing is also about choices. Every word, every sentence, and every story beat is a choice that shapes your writing and voice.
And like your characters, choosing to avoid making choices is still a choice. Whether you take the first choice or dig deeper, affects your writing.
So be a person who takes responsibility for the choices in your storytelling. Take the time to give your story and your readers your best. And please don’t give it up to urgency or laziness. It will make your writing stronger.
