As fiction writers, we create worlds for readers to enjoy. We make them laugh. We make them cry. We make them feel something. Or at least we try.
Readers want to either escape their reality or relate to what they’re reading or both.
It’s our job as writers to suck our readers into the words we laid down for them.
Writers are the masters of the universe. All of us. That’s why there’s so much jealousy among us. We want our worlds to take over everybody else’s. But there’s room for everyone. There’s always room for a new world. It’s even recommended to dabble in each other’s worlds to learn from the experience. It makes us grow as writers.
Dabble in different worlds, then create your own. It’s never too early or too late for a writer to start a novel.
