I’ve spent the last five years writing a novel. Its taken so long partly due to laziness, self-doubt, and other impeding factors, but I always end up returning to it with renewed enthusiasm and spirit, and I think part of the reason is as you mentioned above about the nature of society and creatives.

I also think creativity should ideally be put through a blender, or filter, which is to say that you should critique your own work from every angle, even from the angle of the most harshest most obnoxious critic imaginable, so that by the time it is expelled into the world for other peoples critism, it (or you) can withstand it. No matter what criticsm is aimed at you, you’ll either take it on board objectively and constructively, or discard it as useless, but what you wont do is let it chip away at your resolve and affect you emotionally.

Or something like that anyway, it’s late and I’m brainstorming.

Hey congrats Cihan, do let me know when it’s published!

It’s taken me a little more than that time to finally finish my first novel. ;) The manuscript is complete, it’s been read and critiqued by a couple sets of eyes I trust… and now it’s time for me to really critique it just like you described.

There have been many times when self-doubt and fear sabotaged my progress, which is why it took years instead of months to get this far. And especially in regards to critiquing myself.

It’s strange, but I’ve finally figured it out: my fear of success has prevented me from really being able to chew out all the potential inconsistencies where the reader might lose credibility.

And it’s funny how I discovered it too. I had it in my head that after 6 years I’ve just got to submit it to a publisher for consideration… it just can’t wait any longer. And I almost sent it out, without taking the full time for mindful self-critique in addition to recent reader feedback. But luckily, with the help of a loyal reader, I figured out that my (Inner Child’s) behavior was actually self-sabotage, to reduce the chances for “success,” and some other thins related to that.

So if you can put your creativity through the blender, I salute you, and your work will reap the rewards!

Thanks Melissa.

I’ve found that the forums are really informative, especially when it comes to finding out how to approach literary agents. (or publishers directly if thats the route you want to go)

I have a confession to make: I named a character after you. (hey, told you you’re an inspiration) I named her after you years ago so she is Melissa through and through; cant change it. :P

When it comes to writing I’ve found that if things arent going relatively well in my life then I simply cant write. If I’m upset or depressed, etc, then all creativity in me just shuts down, not just in novel writing but anything creative at all. I’m too busy thinking about these other things, these problems in my life, and to continue with anything creative seems like a waste of time, or an insult, something trivial compared to whatever it is that’s bugging me, and lastly a part of me feels that if I wrote in that state then what I wrote would be lousy.

Is it true that some people can flourish with creativity when they’re in despair or misery? I suppose they are inspired by the darkness around them and it fuels them in some way, but I’m just not like that unfortunately, otherwise I’d have written a ton of stuff by now, heh.

I’m so glad to hear that you’ve finished a novel, you’ve always been an amazing (sci-fi!) writer and I’m sure you’ll get published quickly. In the literary industry it seems the presentation of a writer’s work and the writer themselves is more important than whatever it is they’ve written, so make sure you’re fully prepared when you go bugging agents and publishers!

I’ve read that most people who decide to write just give up halfway, its a statistic something like 90% of writers give up around 100 to 200 pages in. They lose interest, they run out of ideas, out of steam, they start to re-read what they’ve written and think its shit. The secret is that the first draft is meant to be crap, it’s when you finish the first draft, that you really start to write the novel. This is what I’ve learnt anyway, maybe it’ll sound better coming from a guy who’s actually finished the first draft and been published, hah.

Cihan, thanks for the advice and the forum recommendation! That’s thoughtful of you to name a character after me, I’d love to read her someday. :)

Is it true that some people can flourish with creativity when they’re in despair or misery?

I think it depends on the individual.

When I’m burned out or emotionally exhausted, I don’t have the energy to do creative writing. If I’m feeling depressed, no way can I write or do much of anything for that matter.

But if I’m upset, now sometimes that can be good fuel. If the feelings can connect me to the characters, then I can use anger to transition into the fictional world.

I connect with my characters empathetically. The only reason I can write them is because I can empathize with them and thus see them. So if I’m frustrated in my life, as long as it parallels one of my character’s frustrations, then it can be a fast-track to creativity.

In general, my sci-fi novel has been driven by darkness. From one angle, you could say it was driven by my being critical of society, in real life. The pain I’ve processed in these past years has directly fueled my novel. But that’s also partly because I’ve written things that later on ended up being echoed in real life.

In the end, it’s my critical side that gives me the voice to write anything fictional, at least to my understanding. So I wrote this article to remind myself to embrace my critical self. :p
