What are your writing and publishing superpowers (drafting? beta-reading? writing queries? plotting? character creation? etc.) -- and what's your kryptonite?
My first inclination was to moan about my complete lack of any superpowers at all. But then I stop and think for a bit.
Maybe, just maybe I have one.
Maybe even two.
Neither is unusual particularly but completely necessary. I’m still going. Day after day I come back to the computer (or note book – whatever) and open the doc and write some more. When that story is done I start another. And submit eventually. And get rejected. And then I write some more.
Super-persistent with maybe a dash of Super-hopeful/optimistic.
We all are to keep going.
The other power is rarer for me… in a few stories I’ve found a groove. When this supergroove happens the words come out as fast as I can type them and I can get a story down pretty fast (considering how little writing time real life gives me).
But in general as much as I would love to be super-plotter or querier or anything I think turning up is the first step. And perhaps the hardest.
What about you? Are you super?
