If you’ve read my posts, you’ll know that my goal is to write a novel. Well I started putting ideas down on paper a few days ago and this is not as easy as one would think. I’ve had thoughts in my head for awhile of what I wanted to write about, my characters, where it would take place and suddenly I feel like it’s not working. No excitement. No progress. No bueno.
I think my problem is getting wrapped up in preparation.
I’ve read a few articles on what I should be doing to start writing my book and I’m finding that instead of me going about it easily, I’m getting wrapped up in preparation. I’m getting stuck in I should have a, b and c done first and it’s throwing my creative mojo all over the place.
I’m going to do is what I’ve always done – Get excited and just start writing. Once I get going I can worry about all of the pieces coming together and how it will fit.
I’m going to start again tomorrow! Wish me luck!
