THE GROWING WRITER | Learning the Craft by Wanda B. Campbell

When I picked up a pen and notepad and began writing in 2005, I didn’t know the difference between a protagonist and an antagonist. If asked about POV, I most likely would have said, “Isn’t that something on a car?”  For head-hopping, I envisioned little aliens heads bouncing around to different extraterrestrial bodies. That was then.

Every writer must learn how to accept critique and criticism. It’s part of the growing process.  Over the past seven years, thanks to several patient critique partners, I have grown from being just a good storyteller.  When I typed that final period, like most writers, I thought my manuscript was perfect. It was a humbling experience to learn it wasn’t perfect, but mediocre at best.

Learning the craft of writing is a never-ending process. I am always on the lookout for workshops, on-line classes and groups that will help me became a better writer and not just a good storyteller. I surround myself with authors who inspire me and who have reached and excelled at the level I am trying to obtain. I also read as much as possible.
