It may surprise you to learn that many people are partway through a writing project. But they have put their brilliant ideas on the back burner.
Take that project off the back burner, bring it to the forefront, and crank the heat to a rolling boil!
If you know what to do, get to it! Write! Don’t stop; don’t edit (just yet). Simply write and write and write. Push through the finger cramps. Down that protein drink and get those words down on paper.
Do you doubt your story idea? Don’t! It’s normal, but not very productive. Yours is a concept you’ve been mulling on for years, remember? It needs to be written, transferred from your mind to paper.
When you have your rough draft done, now you can tweak it. This is a good time to get expert advice. Either hire someone to give you their advice or find a local writers group (there are many) and get feedback. Make sure your adviser or mentor is encouraging, but honest. Friends may just give you a thumbs-up for fear of hurting your feelings. Kind, but not helpful.
Don’t let another year go by without completing your important book project! This is the year to get it finished and published!
