Discouraged

So I’m feeling a bit discouraged today.  I know it’s only been 2 weeks and 1 day since I started my journey, but I’m still at square one.  I haven’t made any progress on my storyline or characters.  I only have 1 blog follower, so I’m not optimistic about getting advice and suggestions.  I definitely have an issue with patience (I need to work on that) and I’m an instant gratification type of person.  And so my pattern begins.  Typically I have a few days of being discouraged and then I quit.  Obviously, I will try my best to not let that happen this time….but we shall see.  I just wish my creativity would slap me in the face every once in a while.  That’s not too much to ask for, is it?

  1. Writing is going to take a while. Don’t expect your story to be perfect on the first draft (that’s why it’s called a first draft). Rather, revel in the fact that you are actually writing. It takes a lot of perseverance to write something.

    It also takes a lot of time to write something truly amazing.

  2. Writing is work. Fortunately, there is a joy to it as well. Keep trying. Just start writing and if you do not like it, try again, edit, or start with a fresh start. The key is, as Nike would have us believe, JUST DO IT.
