It’s over.

Thirty days to writing a novel have been completed.

What have you got? Let me guess.

1. You have less than 50k words

2. You’re not happy with the result

3. You skipped a few days, missed your minimum on a few others and lost enthusiasm.

Am I close?

If so–Congratulations you have become a novelist! Good days, bad days, productivity and inefficiency.

This was a start and that’s all. Even if you finished you’ve got to edit, polish and rewrite. then when some professional looks at it you’ll have to do it again.

So, it isn’t over. Not even close.

If you want to be an author you keep at it. You keep at it when its not fun, when you have a headache, when you’d rather do something else and when you’ve got other things on your mind.

You work.

Now, there’s no law that says you have to but if you want to be a writer there’s only one thing to do.

Ass on chair, fingers on keyboard. Type!
