Often I have a weird feeling, especially when writing this current novel I just finished, that the way I "hear" the story in my head is not the right way to write it, that somehow the words that I put together to form the sentences that build the scenes I imagine is not an acceptable way of writing for a novel. That I should somehow translate them into a novel writing language to which I don't have the key. I also get the feeling that my writing is a lot younger than I am, that sometimes the things I write comes out as if written by a fourteen year old and not a grown up woman. They sound so good when I write them down and they come so naturally that I never question them, but when I re-read it it sounds SOOO lame. it makes me despair, honestly, because I don't write, or want to write, for young adults. And I quit that kind of reading really early too, so it isn't that I have read mostly that, I can't even remember if ever reading young adult books when younger, at least not many. Do you have any of these problems? what do you do about it? Is it just read, read, read (although I always have, so why would it change anything now?) as always?
