I constantly read ideas for writers on how to create the characters for their novels. The truth is that only after you have tried to write a novel, a short story, a fable, a poem, etc., you cannot imagine how difficult it really is.
For a writer to be in front of a blank page waiting to be filled with inspiration is a very frightening experience. And believe me, things get worse after the first successful novel. You are required to keep the quality of your stories or actually you are expected to write better with every new book.
So the best thing you can do if you are thinking about writing your first, second, third or 100th novel is to listen to more experienced writers so you can learn from their experiences.
Search for inspiration and learn from the mistakes of others, they are all usually very open to share their experiences with people who really want to listen. I do respect and admire writers so much. They are intellectuals, investigators, researchers, observers, journalists, poets, dreamers, hard workers, etc. All those in just ONE person.
So as you can see, writing a book is not an easy task. It requires hard work and a lot of thinking.
But what about your life?
