      • Even if the concept is original, it takes a lot of work to make a story unique...to approach it in a new way so that every tale isn't the same as what has been done before.

      • Though e-books are more convenient for tech savvy readers, I often contemplate whether we should put such an emphasis on that kind of medium. I'd hate for people to forget how wonderful it is to hold a physical book. I like to display all the books I buy on my shelves. You don't necessarily have that luxury with an e-reader. Well, maybe in some ways.

        Yet, certain technology may not always last. What if we were forced to go dark sometime? Then how might we read our books?

      • Busy! I go out of my way to try to work on the book in some capacity each day. Whether I'm writing a scene, chapter, or simply doing research, I make sure I'm working toward my goal of finishing the story and honoring its original vision. However, I keep my mind open for when a character surprises me.

      • Yes, I have. There's a lot of me in my work. My fiancé agrees. Also, if a big trauma happened in my life, it's bound to come out on the page somewhere. That's just the way I'm wired. Writing is cathartic.

      • I could name all of them, but if I have to narrow it down, I think editing is the worst part. I've spent a long time writing the book, and I start to get antsy when the editing stage rolls around. I'd prefer it to be over as soon as it starts.

        The practical side knows it's a necessary evil, but at the same time I would rather go hide than acknowledge all the mistakes I made. Plus, once the book has been sent to beta readers, it's out of my hands. Yet, I still can't help but want to start chewing my fingernails because the waiting period is so intense.

      • OMG...try to have more patience! With yourself, with others of course, but also just because every writer's journey isn't easy, and being frustrated with the lag times doesn't help anyone in long run.

      • Besides releasing as many books as possible? LOL. I would like to do more traveling. I've always wanted to travel all over the world.

        Ireland is one of my dream goals. My great grandfather was Irish, and I'd like to explore my roots a bit. I love the music there, and the mythology. Plus, the country just looks stunning. I can't wait to visit it! :)

      • With the emphasis on short posts via social media and urban slang - abbreviating everything - I fear for the future of the current generation. If we don't teach them well, especially leave them with great reading skills, then yes, the publishing industry will suffer. But that's beside the point, really. The problem is that literacy is so essential to being a functional member of society. If we can't read, we can't question what's happening around us. And we won't know how to avoid making history's mistakes again. Without reading, I would be nowhere. I use the skill to research everything for a story, but also any time I have a question about current events. What's more is that all the books I've read in my life have taught me so much.

        You don't need to attend college to do this, but you can be self-taught. My advice for the current generation is...Read every book you can get your hands on. Some people aren't into the fictional world. That's fine. Just don't stop reading. When you're online, consider the source. Is it legitimate? Does this person know what they're talking about, or is it just one more individual creating a YouTube tutorial to make money? Yet, reading a book? That's different. Literature helps us evaluate the world around us. We will pick up better skills, learn about history, and how things work.

        How can we understand everything better without being able to read books?

      • I'd like to think it has evolved considerably. I'm more comfortable in my own skin when writing. I can approach new territories - try out new genres or sensitive topics - without feeling insecure. I know upfront that not everybody will love the book, but if I am not honoring my characters and the book's vision, what is the point of writing?
