Had a battle with doubt today.
Lately, I’ve been really waking up to something very clear, and that’s that I am, indeed, going to finish NANTUCKET. And I’m going to finish other books, too. After years and years of always starting but never seeming to be able to actually finish, this knowing that I will finish is a very different feeling. A much nicer feeling, definitely. But still, a little scary.
The daily writing has made a difference to me. I know now that I’ll actually be seeing a first draft soon (at the rate I’m going, and if I can keep this up over my holidays, it will happen by the end of July!). That I’ll be revising. And working on a first draft of another novel. And then another. I’m going to just keep on going, keep on writing.
The daily writing has made the sitting-down-to-write part of things easy. It’s just what I do. I seem to have a large self-filling bottle of bum glue now.
The thing is, will any of my novels I write be any good?
I guess that’s the big question.
