There is truth in the statement that putting things in writing creates clarity in logical thinking. The simple creation of a list, a set of pros and cons can quickly illuminate inconsistencies, missing facts, and flaws in reasoning. What may have been a jumble of feelings and beliefs and conjectures, take form, they evolve into carefully constructed arguments.
The same happens when creating a story. Characters evolve, the plot forms, we discover inconsistencies, missing facts, and flaws. Visions floating in scattered, nebulous thoughts coalesce into a cohesive whole, as we make conscious decisions on the events driving character arc and story.
Does the process of writing your story help build your confidence?
Keep on writing.
