Writing Advice

Turning negative experiences into great writing

Circle-Thumb

Today was a great day for me. You’re probably wondering what happened. Well the day job sent me to a food convention and while the experience was a good one I had the misfortune of working with a total a-hole at my booth.

But hey, I’m a writer, so I seized this opportunity to use a real-life experience to enrich my life and my writing. Not every “bad” experience is really bad. Not if you allow it to ruin your day.

So the next time the Writing Gods put a total dickwad on your life path, make the most of it by using the experience to create even better villains.

And then after that, you can beat them up if it’ll make you feel better. But I wouldn’t recommend it. We’re civilized folks here, right?
