It's been a while since my last post, but I have a very good reason.
After 4 years of collecting snippets, scenes, ideas and more in my giant binder, I sat down and wrote my middle grade fantasy.
I finished it......completely, my friends. I can't believe I'm saying that, but I did!
It has a beginning,middle, end,conflict, resolution, etc. You name it, it's there.
I started on May 21, 2014 and wrote, nonstop, every day, afternoon and some evenings.
I finished on July 1, 2014 and could not have felt better than I did in that moment.
I still have to edit/revise, but I actually finished!!
Along the way, I had other ideas for two more books and a title idea for a third. (different characters)
For those of you that are going through writers block or think you can't do it, believe me when I say,YOU CAN!! If I can do it, so can you.
I was making everything harder in my head than it had to be. I was also comparing my ideas to best selling authors and that was wrong. I had to let all that go, plant my butt in the chair and just do it.
I will confess that I like writing better than revising, though. lol.
Have a great night, my friends. :)
