Doing the Opposite

I found this good suggestion at Fresh Fiction the other day.

Now I’m not suggesting that you go out and do the opposite of whatever you’re doing, but I have found over the last couple of years that many of my own problems result from continuing to do the same thing even when it doesn’t actually work.

In the case of Angie Fox, author of the post I cited, it was a matter of doing something nearly the opposite of what she had been. The result is that she has a new book coming out, The Accidental Demon Slayer. I know nothing about it but what she writes, but what’s important for writers is that it is published! For others, there may be some other goal.

Now writing something different isn’t precisely the opposite of writing. But it’s still a big change. It’s a good suggestion!
