Out With the Old, In With the New.

I’ve come to realize why I’ve been struggling with the story I was working on. I started it over ten years ago and have been trying to revive it, but the sad truth is, I’m a completely different person than I was then. So good news and bad news. Bad news, it’s going to take me a little more time to finish my first book. Good news, I just started a new story and I’ve finally got my flow back. Almost 2000 words in just a couple hours before I had to stop. I really want to keep going but I know to quit when I start to get punchy.

Well friends, it’s all over but the drinking. I have to confess, I failed miserably. I blame it on a lack of planning. About a week in I realized there were some serious holes in my plot. Once I finally figured them out, I was already well behind the curve. After a few other problems, I was forced to admit I wasn’t going to finish on time. But don’t worry, I learned some valuable lessons. The most important of these was simply the habit of writing every day. Even if I work slowly, if I work every day I will finish in time.
