Day 6: Steal

Day 6: Steal

It’s Day 6 of the Mastering the Habits of Great Writers challenge. Today’s challenge is to steal! You can see the whole challenge here.

One thing I’ve been doing lately is reading a lot of Princess books to help with writing my Princess story. I’ve had a mixed response from people. Some have recommended books for me to read, while others have told me to stop reading them and just find my own voice.

I wrote my princess story without much knowledge of stories that have been published recently – I have two boys so there is a distinct lack of princess books in our bookshelves. Reading all these books gave an insight into what books are published now and helped me work out what message I wanted to portray.

With my Accidental WAHM stories, I suppose I’m stealing from the stories I’ve heard about work at home Mums and their experiences and weaving them into the stories I’m writing.

Even with Jimmy James, I’ve been stealing from any story where someone goes back in time…

With all of this, I realised I’m actually stealing quite a bit!
