In the world of writing, especially when you're starting off and new to everything, it can be easy to stay in your comfort zone. You know what I mean - we like to stay safe, keep ourselves in positions where we don't rock the boat or cause too much conflict - because we wouldn't want that would we?
Let's face it, we've all undoubtedly read books and stories where the writer has taken this approach and often it's disappointing. I'm sure you know the sort of thing - the ending was kind of mwah or left you wondering how you might get the eight hours back you spent reading the book. You may even have felt let down - after all you committed to this and thought you were in a balanced relationship, only to find that actually the author wasn't as committed as you thought.
So I say, embrace your boldness - write about those things that make your heart soar but also those that make your heart bleed. Show your readers raw emotion, take them on your journey, make them walk in your shoes. Share laughter and pain, take them to new heights and drop them to the lowest ebb. Make them want to be part of the story. Make them believe.
Go on, give it a try. You know you want to.
