    Yes! So true. Put in the time, put in the effort. Don’t regret not working at achieving what you most want in your life. Go Girl! We’re behind you. You are not alone…ReplyCancel

    Yup. Last week I was asked, what’s your best advice for somebody who’s writing their first novel? I said: “Write it.” 🙂ReplyCancel

    I agree the more I write the better it reads, but I still have a long way to go 🙂

    I am also feeling the nudge to get going. Dream. Great. Do. Accomplish.

    Really love this! Once I “get into” the work, I love it too, it’s actually making myself sit down and do it that hurts. 🙂ReplyCancel

      Sometimes we do the little things that even sabotage ourselves. Thanks for the comment, Jess!ReplyCancel

    This is so true! I just wish the rest of the world would leave me alone so I could work. 🙂 Good luck!ReplyCancel

    I actually enjoy the re-writing process. For me, it’s a lot easier to edit than to write that first draft. I think of the process as the work of a jeweller in his most prized diamond. Each expert cut is meant to show a new facet on the stone, to make it shine even brighter. My problem comes when realizing it is time to stop. I can fix a story until the end of time, but there’s a point when you’re probably doing more harm than good. If only it were that easy to know…

    Good luck with the re-writing!ReplyCancel

      I have a hard time writing the first draft too, Georgina. But these rewrites are almost like starting from scratch, and that’s why it’s taking me longer. Thanks for the visit!ReplyCancel

    That’s incredibly true. I’m working at working. Good luck to everyone as they work on their dreams!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaNovember 6, 2014 - 8:06 PM

      Thank you, Shannon! That’s how I feel sometimes, just working at working.ReplyCancel

    That is so true Lucinda. Keep at it! And thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
