New Determination

"It is the size of one's will which will determine success."

After soaking up some much needed support from amazing friends and my wonderfully supportive fiance, I think I've found fresh determination.

I'm just going to write. The simple way. No compulsive editing. No looking back. No crying over spilt words. Just - writing. In its purest problem-infested form.

Yup, and once I get the hang of pushing through again? What then? I'm going to make myself finish all the major works I've started. I beleive there are four or five that I've invested quite a bit of time and word count into and those are my targets. Even if they aren't stories I see myself publishing anymore, I think I need to finish them for the sake of finishing them. Besides I could use the practice. Heck, maybe one of them will regain my love and respect.

We'll see. I'm just going to take it one day at a time (days hopefully filled with writing) and see where it takes me.

  1. You can do it! I need a bit of determination myself--I love drafting, but the editing gets me every time. GAH.

    I hate editing. *cries*

    But I will prevail!

    Thanks for visiting us at the bookshelf muse!

  2. I so get what you mean about JUST WRITING. There was a point awhile ago where I realized that's exactly what I needed to do. I didn't allow myself to go back and touch anything. Granted, I'm going back to a few areas and adding and tweaking right now but my internal editor doesn't hold me back as much. It's a fantastic feeling! :)

    Yah know, I think that finishing some WIPs will be so exciting. To know that you've made it to the finish line. Good luck!
