About a year ago I finished a draft of my first novel. I enjoyed writing it and I loved editing it. I am not tired of my characters or my story, even though I’ve read it 10 times.
One of the last times I read it, I realized there were parts of my story I wasn’t sure I was getting right because I didn’t have the experience to know if it was wrong . So, I came to the conclusion that I needed to do some research which would include not only books but actions.
I began to do the research I needed and when I didn’t get answers to my questions right away, I started to say to myself that I would do it later. First it was one week, then it was three weeks and now it’s been months. I have everything I need to get back to what I was doing. I know where I need to go, who I need to talk to and how to get what I don’t have. I just have to get off my ass and do it.
I don’t know if a lot of writers go through this (maybe it’s just me. I really hope not cause I might have to take some procrastination classes or something), but I started my author blog in the hopes that it would help to get me back on track. I started not to write this post because it says so much about me personally and not my writing, but I thought it might help someone else and I need to practice putting myself out there.
