Kyra Leigh, Queen Bee

When it comes to writing, you have the freedom to do whatever you want.

Build worlds with little green men with big floppy hats. Create characters that are so flawed you wonder how they get out of bed in the morning. Love stories that make you question if your own relationship could be that romantic.

But how much is too much? When does it turn from Great! Amazing! to Overload! Really? Why?

I’ve been rewatching the TV series Game of Thrones with my boyfriend. He’s never seen the show before, so it’s  nice to see his face when a favorite character dies. His favorite WAS Rob Stark, up until the Red Wedding.
But I’m also watching and I’m thinking ‘Really?’ a lot. Even though I adore the show and the characters, sometimes I wonder if it’s too much.

George RR Martin is a bestselling author, so maybe it isn’t too much.

But do I need all of this in my story to make it a bestseller?

Do I need to overload my reader?

And I think the answer is sometimes and sometimes not.

I just finished writing my third {Full} novel a few months ago and there is so much happening, yet so little happening. I’m torn. Where do I add the good pieces? Where do I make the novel sing?

Writing is amazing. There is so much freedom and so much possibility.

But writing is hard and confusing and I find myself wondering what I’m doing.
