Small Steps

A wise person once said that easy reading is hard writing.

I couldn’t agree more.

In the fall of 2016, I started writing a novel. Unfortunately, I am not as far along as I thought I would be. Most novels start at about 80,000 words. As of this week, I am up about 21,000 words.

Life, a full-time job, my freelancing work and the easy access to social media often pushes my novel down to the list of priorities.

But this past week, I made a choice. I made a choice to make small steps to complete my novel. Every night I spent a few minutes working on the novel via the notes I received from my writing group.

It’s not easy and often requires making editing choices that I would prefer not to make, however, the choices are necessary.

I know that the first draft will not be done for quite a while. However, I am confident that the small steps I am making will one day lead to a complete novel.
