Never give up, because great things take time
This REALLY applies to writing, because writing takes a LONG time. Even for the most prolific of writers, going from idea to novel takes YEARS. A lot of years. It took me two years to finish the #WhoIsTalyaNightingale manuscript to the point where I decided that it was ready to start looking for an agent to represent it.
And even now, I still know that it needs work. There’s a chance (a very likely one at that), that I’m going to go in and take another hard look at the manuscript soon (after NaNoWriMo, obviously), and even that’s going to take a couple months of working and reworking.
And there will still be MORE reworking after that.
It’s a process, and sometimes there are days when you won’t be interested in writing. For sure, I have days where I’m not interested in writing, but I still know that I have to write SOMETHING. It doesn’t have to be the current manuscript I’m working on, but I always like to be writing or thinking about something that I want to write.
You just have to keep going. There’s no reason to give up, and it’s DEFINITELY never to late to get started.
As always, here’s to a productive week of NaNo-ing or just writing, whatever you’re doing.
