Think you can write? Just try it.
on January 9, 2012
I started this book and made it through the first week before I was ready to delete the book out of frustration. It may not be the "right" way most people would undertake a novel, but if you want to prove to yourself that you can do it, this is the book to try. I haven't finished it yet, and I suspect it's going to turn into a nine month novel rather than a nine week novel, but the good, the bad and the ugly sure do show up when you're forced to put pen to paper. If nothing else this book will get my house cleaner than it's ever been. "I'll write after I clean out the pantry." "I'll write after I sort the linen closet." "I'll write after I wash all the dog's bedding." "I'll write after I wash all the baseboards with ammonia." You get the idea. And you're probably thinking, "Maybe you shouldn't be a writer." I know that's what I'm thinking.
