This is my first novel. I've learned in this process that determination and forcing yourself to sit down and write is the most important practice in achieving any writing goal.
These are my raw thoughts this week. This is a part of the creative process. You have personal rough patches. Acknowledge them, feel them, but power through. It will be worth it soon enough.
I write because I want to be remembered. I want to tell grand stories that connect with a wide audience of readers.
I guess at the moment I’m feeling nostalgic for my hometown. I’m proud to come from there and want kids growing up with similar aspirations to mine to see that it is possible.
I've been plugging away on my novel and put down some thoughts on its development. There's also a brief excerpt for you!
