Hello on Sunday, the first day of a new writing week. What kind of a writing day has it been today -- or yesterday, if today hasn't gotten going yet?
- I thought about my fic once or twice
- I wrote
- I did some planning and/or research
- I edited
- I've sent my fic off to my beta
- I posted today!
- I'm taking a break
- I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
- Ernest Hemingway once said, "If a writer knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one ninth of it being above water." I have found it true that a lot of the research I do to create a body of knowledge about what I am writing doesn't always get used when I actually start writing, yet the fact that I researched and know the subject matter still seems to give me a foundation which is somehow revealed in the story, even if I'm not writing about it in detail. Do you find this to be true as well, or not? Are details important for you to include when you write or are they not so important?
