Writing is all about... PERSERVERENCE
Through the hard times, the thick, the thin. The downright crappy.
- guess where I'm at at the moment.
Everyone (except me) has a tummy bug. On a long weekend when we'd hoped to have some nice family time and I'd hoped to do a spot of catch-up on my wordcount.
I'm at that point in the WIP where all the horrible stuff is starting to happen. Its the last third of the book and its always a slog through here. Hard to write. Even harder to fix. And utterly exhausting. Its the time where I just have to make myself sit there day in, day out and type each word one after the other. In a week or two the rough draft will be done and this bit will be a vague memory but for now its just perservere, perservere, perservere.
I remember seeing on one author's website (I *think* it might have been Cherry Adair but I'm probably wrong) - "writing isn't for cissies".
- it sure isn't.
It's hard and its getting harder the more I do - because every book you want to be better, more funny, more emotional, more uplifting... more, more, more (what you do is never enough, you know?) and it is a huge effort and I think you need to be pretty tough.
Ugh. Ignore me. Having a 'not enough sleep' melodrmatic moment. Best get back upstairs and to the wip pronto!!!
