Short post today--though that might be a blessing. I've been known to be long-winded. :-) Unplanned things going on, so I have a change up in my "I" word.
A young writer once gave me advice that I'll never forget. She told me that if I can't or don't immerse myelf in the story, the reader never will either.
One of the ways I've learned to deeply immerse myself in my WIP is to "write in the moment".Much as the saying holds true. "We don't remember days, only moments.", when we write days, weeks, months or years, we tend to distance ourselves, lose the intimacy with the scene. But when we immerse ourselves in the story and write only moments at a time, we zoom in and make ourselves, and our readers part of it.
That's it for today. Happy A to Z-ing.
