I love this video on being creative. In my own writing I feel I am right in the middle. I know when I've written something good. And I know when I've written something that is either not great or merely adequate. But I can't pinpoint what I need to change to make the not great/merely adequate chapters good.
They say you have to write 10,000 hourse before you understand how to write stories. If I'd known that in the beginning I would have started a log for my hours.
