An Interview With StoryADay Superstar C.H. Schoen
Before I found StoryADay I had been back to writing for three years after a long break.
I Had Ideas But Nothing On Paper
I was not confident in what I was writing and I was not consistent. I would start stories and never finish them. I had book ideas coming up left and right but nothing outlined on paper.
I came across StoryADay when I was randomly googling about short stories. I thought it was interesting to find a group that would be writing a story every day for a month.
I have always been up for a challenge so I joined.
Sharing My Writing Again
Since doing StoryADay I am more confident and constant than I have ever been in my writing before. I am finally sharing my writing again with others and I’m putting myself out there for critics.
The writing I produce now is finished and more polished than it had been previously. Within the next few months, I will start sending out queries to get my stories into the world.
Confidence in My Creative Process
My biggest success in writing has been completing multiple short stories and finding confidence again in my creative process. I completed my first draft of a novel I had been working on for two years thanks to the encouragement of our NaNoWriMo group this last year.
Being part of a writing community has changed my life”
It has been absolutely amazing to be part of the Superstars group and to have fellow writers at all different levels to talk to.
I haven’t had the opportunity to be part of a writing community until this last year and it has truly changed my life. It has been great to share my writing successes and struggles within this community. Everyone has been very supportive.
The progress I have experienced in this group has been a driving force to keep pushing my craft. Meeting up with blank pages daily can be daunting at times but when you know there are others doing the same thing it makes all the difference. This experience has taught me writing does not have to to be a lonely process people have made it out to be when you have a community of writers to turn to.
