Quote for the week: I can shake off everything as I write, my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. Anne Frank
Today is #InkRipple Day, and it sure fits me right now. The topic is Finishing That Book. Boy, do I need that. I hang my head in shame.
Why? Well, I have four stories started: one I'm revising, one is in rough draft, another is ready for revising, and the last is just a title with a character. Oh, and that's not counting an historical story that I'm about halfway through, or was before I decided to work on a different one. So, what is wrong with me. Why can't I finish one book before I start another? Am I afraid to finish, afraid they will be blah, no good, boring, etc?
I started revising one a few days ago and swear I'm sticking with it until the end. I'd like to have it ready to submit soon.
There's also the two books I now have my contracts back. Hope to revise them and publish.
So, have you ever been like this? Just can't seem to finish anything? If so, did you find an answer?
