Writing your Bliss Rather than Writing to the Market

Writing your bliss rather than writing to the market may not be easy to do. It’s tempting to want to write to the market. If you do that, however, you risk:

  • being uninspired by your own plot
  • boring readers because they will sense the lack of inspiration
  • your writing lacking authenticity
  • your readers sensing that lack of authenticity

Follow Your Heart

In this episode, Melissa chats with mystery writer, Brook Peterson, about ‘Writing Your Bliss’, or following your heart when you write instead of following the market.
