I seem to work on this a lot. A lot less than I did before but still a lot compared to everything else I attempt to do. I still don’t seem to get very far into it. My problem? I want to get to the good parts and skip all the small parts. You know, the parts people consider the glue. But I realize that I have to put in all of the small parts or it wont make any sense. Sometimes I wish I could just snap my fingers and be done with it.
Easy button anyone?
Right now I am attempting to finish chapter nine. Mostly because I have been in this chapter way too long. Too long being nearly two months. I set myself a goal and at this rate I won’t achieve it.
What is the goal? I wanted to be done with the first draft by December 2013 – which would be a year. But at the rate I am at right now, it won’t happen. I have decided though, I won’t be hard in myself if I don’t achieve it. It sometimes takes people a couple years to write their first book. With jobs and every day life, sometimes you have to take what you can.
I have faith in myself and I know I can. It just takes time. Hopefully sooner than later I will be able to share my novel with y’all. A clip or something. Hopefully I write more often – typing on a cell phone can get annoying fast.
So until next time..
