Okay folks, I've come to a realization. I'm not going to write a book by racing through the whole writing process. I know, shocking;) In fact, it's going to take a lot of time. See, my attitude has been Holy crap! I've got to finish this thing! Kind of like it's a one step deal - write the book, end of story. But it's not like that. (Yes, I know you have to edit and all that fun stuff, but I'm not there yet.) Writing a book takes a series of steps. There's no cheating allowed, no skipping anything, no writing so fast that you start and end with a book deal in three months.
It. Is. Going. To. Take. Time.
You know, like taking baby steps. And each step will get you that much closer to your dreams. Sure, sometimes you're going to fall down, but you need to pick yourself up, dust off those doubts, and push on.
So have you come to any realizations lately?
