Nothing in my life has come easy. I only earned straight A’s in high school because I studied hard every day. I only survived college projects because I worked hard.
So why I thought writing would be ANY different is beyond me. For whatever reason, I thought it would be easy–you sit down, write a book, find an agent, and wha-lah, published author. But, I was wrong, very wrong.
Writing the book is not easy. The first draft is easy. It’s the twentieth draft and beyond that is not.
So, as I start my umpteenth ‘final’ revision, I have realized this is how it’s supposed to be: hard. So, I’m gonna suck it up and get to work!
