Writing is Hard
I've always thought that you should never enter into the world of writing and publishing lightly. There are easier hobbies to take up.
If you want to call yourself a writer, please enjoy what you do, because writing is hard. Getting anything done is near impossible. And starting is even harder than completing.
Know what I'm talking about?
I've been writing all my life. I often tell my clients stories of how I used to hurry to get my school work done so that I could take out the latest story that I'd written and work on that. That's when I was eight.
Now I'm much older and have a few years of proper writing under my belt- and by 'proper' I mean I have actually completed a full-length novel. I can still remember the sense of immense relief and satisfaction that I felt after my novel had been polished.
Writing is hard. Finding a place that is quiet and encourages creative escape is hard. Finishing a project is even harder.
So, I'm going to be writing a series of encouraging posts that are full of tips for any writer, new-experienced or professional- that will help you to re-evaluate how you see your hobby/career. I hope that by the end of the series you'll think of the process of writing and finishing a project as less overwhelming and more enjoyable.
Series begins: May 23, 2022
