Ever since I was a kid, I've loved to write.
But honestly, I've never really finished a story. It all became too hard. BUT!!!
I FINISHED THE ONE I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!! Finally. I've had so much trouble finishing this manuscript, mostly because I've actually never finished one, I suppose.
However, everything felt a little dry, and it was, but now it time to fix it!
I've heard it said that you don't write a book, you rewrite it.
And, that you can't fix a blank page.
It's true, lol
I've begun the revision process, and I'm only on page 2! I see LOTS AND LOTS of things to change.
Things that will make it much, much better, and lead the story where I want it go go a little more smoothly.
To the people who prompted me to stick it out: Thanks.
I really appreciate your help.
I see now what you were talking about. Get the story down, then get to rewriting.
Without you, this would have been another unfinished piece.
If I'm really honest, this isn't my best work. Lord willing, if I can finish this one, I can finish the next one!
