I’ve worked on this story for over ten years now. Either in my head or in writing, I’ve walked this path so many times. I’ve started and stopped more times than I can count. Today, I crossed page 172 in my story.
A friend printed off two copies of the story for people to read and provide feedback. Seeing it on printed pages and holding it in my hands was…surreal. It motivated me to finish the story. Regardless of what happens next, I will finish AWID.
It might never get printed into a novel or novella, or even a short story, but it will be one of the stories that I complete. I’m beyond excited. I started to take pictures so you guys could see it, but I’d rather wait until the rough draft is completed.
So, keep pushing through those days where writing is a chore. Make your dreams a reality, you can do it. I believe in you.
