Writing Rule #5

#5  Stretch.  Struggle.  Leave the low hanging fruit for those who refuse to do that very same stretching and struggling.  Someone else has thought of the first thing you thought of too, and run with it.  How can you make an idea your own?  By crafting it, whittling it, and worrying it smooth with your dreams and desires.  The stories I’m proudest of are the ones that were HARD to write.  Perhaps you’ll experience that to be true for you, too.
