I’ve wanted to write a book for… pretty much my whole life.
But I would start an idea and then just give up. One time I even got to 25,000 words and then called it quits. So, after watching several different Masterclasses on writing, I felt inspired to give it another try. However, this time, I came up with a real strategy. I was not going to just wing it. Here are the steps I followed to finally complete a 80, 416 word manuscript.
As someone that dreams of writing a book (or several), I always seem to find myself coming up with excuses for why I can’t write or why what I’ve written isn’t good enough. But, in the past year, I found myself overcoming at least some of these hurdles and managed to get down 23,000 words on a novel I’m working on. Some of that was just sitting in a chair and putting in the work, but I believe a big part was finding the right inspiration.
