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. Don’t forget to sign up for the #MondayMotivation Newsletter by clicking HERETaking a break on the newsletter this week, so look forward to the next edition landing in your inbox in December.

A life-long college sports fan and forever bitter about the country’s east coast biases, Kathryn, the Fake Redhead, graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Creative Writing, emphasis in poetry because she felt the fiction studies emphasis was too pretentious. She is currently helping other writers hone their craft while she pursues her dreams of becoming a published novelist.
