Writing Rule #11

#11 Write the story you want to tell.  I’ve only recently come to the realization that I don’t want to tell some stories, even ones I’ve started writing.  They’re just not in me, and that’s fine.  You don’t have to use every idea, or include every plot point, or tell every story that your shiny=grabbit! writers mind foists upon you.  Nor should you.  Write the story that’s bursting to get out of you.  Give that one wings and bright eyes and little hooks on the end of its legs.  Give it life.  Then loose it upon the world.
