Do I Have To Do This?

Things I have learned . . .

In my grand quest to become a published author these are the things that I have learned so far:

1. I have learned that I could use about 5 more hours in the day to get everything accomplished that I think I need to.

2. I have learned that I need a bigger house, (or at least another bedroom) so that I can have a quiet place to sit and think and oh, what a concept maybe even write. This way I wouldn't have to escape from my house to get anything done.

3. I have learned that if I spent as much time reading as I do writing I could probably be done by now. (Okay, maybe not.)

4. I have learned that most authors are very supportive of struggling authors. I have read some rants from authors that will remain nameless on how "everyone thinks that because they can read they can write." Okay.

5. I have learned that writing is hard work and there are some days that I'm not sure I should be doing this. But the days that I think I can are what keep me going.

I'm sure I've actually learned more than that, but at this point in the morning I'm not sure I've had enough coffee to remember everything. Maybe I should start writing it down as I go. See, the ideas just never stop!

  • I totally hear you - I would agree to every single one of those points. And one more too.

    I have learned that the internet is a factastic tool for research, but you have to unplug it to get any work done.

  • Tracey - lol that is so true about unplugging it to work. I find myself searching author blogs when I need to be concentrating on what happens next!
