What do you do when you grind to a halt while trying to write?
My novel Tyrs Ransom is still moving along! Slowly.
The book is written, but I’m going through an edit and have 30,000 words to go. I knocked another 800 words out last night.
If you’re trying to write a novel and you feel overwhelmed. That’s normal. Just keep chipping away at it and don’t give up. Make sure you realize up front, that you will be going over your work again and again. Don’t let it get you down.
Short stories go faster and give you an immediate sense of accomplishment, but a novel takes longer. If you get so bogged down in your attempt to complete a book, then stop and write a short story. I do.
But, for now, it’s back to work on Tyrs Ransom. Or just maybe a short story?
