I think I just had a writing epiphany today. If you are writing a story and you start to get bored writing it, then wouldn't it be logical to conclude that the reader will get bored reading it? Maybe I'm wrong, but recently I've been trying to make a good beginning to my short story and so far I've hated it. I'm writing and I'm trying to describe what the characters are doing and what they're wearing and when I go back and read it I realize they're doing nothing of significance, and worse it's boring. So, I cut out significant sections and kept only what would be enough to establish the mood (which was like two sentences) and I didn't describe the characters a lot (one of them was going to die soon and was mostly insignificant to the story, one doesn't become important until later, and the main character can be described as I go along) After reading I felt much better because it didn't drag on. It still needs work, but at least I'm not describing boring things which I think was my problem in the first place. Anyway, that's what I've learned today. If the next time I write and start getting bored again, then I think the problem lies with what I'm writing and not so much me getting bored. I should feel excited with what I'm writing. Right?
