Make A New Bird

There are many different ways of approaching your writing project. I find it best to approach writing like this:

It Is Yours, Then It Is Theirs.

In the beginning, when the story is fresh, it is all about you, the writer. Write about whatever you want. No one has to see it. You can write about ninja pancakes if you want. Doesn’t matter. You are writing for you.

Write the story you want to read.

After you’ve done that, it is time to pass your creation on to the reader.

Once you have written the story you wanted to read (you know, the one about the ninja pancake), then you release it to the world.

You just put it out there. It doesn’t matter if people love it or hate it, because it isn’t yours anymore.

Let that little bird fly away, and then go. Make a new bird.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
