This week’s Tuesday Therapy session comes to you via Karen Miller, prolific storyteller extraordinaire.
By now, most of you probably already know and love Karen’s work — whether it’s her epic fantasies or her Star Wars and Stargate novels. With fifteen books published since 2005 — that’s right, I said fifteen books in roughly five years — she clearly writes like a fiend. Not only that, she creates rollicking narratives that have entertained thousands of readers all over the world. Needless to say, Karen’s advice to writers suffering from the Tuesdays is invaluable:
To quote the inimitable Terry Pratchett: ‘The first draft is you telling yourself the story.’ That means it doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be finished. You can’t perfect what doesn’t exist.
