“The first draft is just you telling yourself the story”
– Terry Pratchett.
I’m currently writing the first draft of a novel, right now I’m 25k words in. Some days it’s a struggle, but other days my words flow like the rocky rapids.
On the slower days it’s easy to get disheartened and to lose interest.
So, this is a quote that I keep coming back to whenever I find my foot slipping off of the metaphorical gas pedal.
Because, as I’ve mentioned before on this blog, we all have our own graveyards full of our abandoned projects.
I don’t want this one to be buried there too.
Striving for progress is important.
You just need to make sure that you reach the destination, sometimes that can be the hardest part.
