You can throw down words in a story, slap ideas together, make your characters dance like puppets, but the story is not ready if it doesn't feel right in your head. A million people can read what you wrote and love it, but do you have to approve? The story might sound good and the lines well written, but if it doesn't feel right in my head, I am not satisfied. I actually get an uncomfortable feeling down my spine, a kind of tension until I make the changes that feel right to me. Of course there is always room for improvement, and I'm never quite satisfied, but there comes a point when you release the story to others and that doesn't happen till it's right for me.
Do you have this same problem? Is this a problem to begin with? I mean...we should write for ourselves first. Right? This is your love, your interest.
Write for yourself and drag the others with you.
