What I Know
I know that writing a good novel, one that is worth reading, can’t be rushed. That sometimes it can take years…and that’s ok. (*sigh*)
I know that the social media surrounding this industry is not what it used to be. And that for a lot of writers, who would rather just write and let the rest fall where it may, it can be difficult to see through the haze.
I know that in spite of that haze, we (I) need to find a comfortable space somewhere within the madness of the social aspect to succeed.
I know that some days I can’t get my head out of the clouds to save my life and that focus can be a four letter word if you spin it just right.
I know that I LOVE my novel and that I love to write. And those two things should be enough drive to keep me moving forward. (But some days they’re not.)
I know that running will clear my head and help me organize the cluster of randomness that my thoughts often become.
I know that I am following, listening to, and taking advice from, some of the best writers in this industry (published or not). And this only makes me a better writer.
And I know at the end of the day, I need to relax about all of it because I will succeed.
If in doubt from time to time, I highly recommend these writers and their blogs:
