This week’s word prompt from https://weeklyprompts.com/2022/09/17/weekly-prompts-weekend-challenge-glimmer/
All stories start with a glimmer of an idea.
The first sentence, which gives inspiration to all authors, the important hook to any reader. Sometimes it isn’t obvious until the story has been written.
But it is there.
We have no confidence in our words, but that’s what first drafts are for. It is only by editing, getting someone else to read your work, whether it is a beta reader, alpha reader or friends.
An editor too, but not everyone can afford them.
They can infer things, you never even thought of and notice errors you thought were a perfect piece of narration. We all need thick skin, because it is a great way to improve.
So, let that glimmer of words steer you from one sentence to the next, and maybe before you know it a novel is born.
