What Keeps Me Going….

My novel is going painfully slow…

All I want is to be done.  To throw in the towel and say “it’s not worth it”.  To wash my hands and give it to God.

Most days I have an inkling of this.

For I only get 2-3 pages edited in one sitting, which is usually 2-3 hours long.

It sucks.

No sugar coating that.

And then I get to a scene in my novel that takes my breath away.

That has a life on its own…and I certainly am unsure how that happened.

And I say to myself, “This is what keeps me going…”

For I know if it impacts me, it will impact you and hopefully more so since I know it’s all make-believe.  For the most part.

Putting your heart and soul into words and on paper is never easy.  In fact, I would say it’s one of the hardest tasks man does.

Yet the reward is unfathomable.

And I can only dream you will one day think so as well…
