I want to thank those of you who have stuck by me as I’m working my way down this road. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I think I have ADD, and I did it in a joking manner, but it wasn’t intended to make light of the condition, or those who have it. I just have a really bad/short attention span and get distracted very easily…
That said, I really am taking some time to myself right now to focus on the things that I want to write about rather than what is popular or cool or trendy…or what ever.
I have this great character – she’s strong, she’s feminine. And she deserves a strong story. One that is full of character, life, romance, and perhaps some suspense. Not something forced or contrived.
This does not mean that I have given up, nor does it mean that I am disappearing completely. But as any aspiring author knows – especially one with a full-time job and no writing education – writing is hard work. And like any other job, there are days I’m just not feeling it. Maybe I should force myself to work on the novel for at least 30 minutes every day? Some days, I’ll achieve more but on those days when I’m not feeling it, at least I’ll accomplish something.
What do you think? And remember, I do enjoy reading feedback and comments. And I’ll always respond.
Again, thank you.
