This week Dr Tanya has shared this quote;
“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” (W. Somerset Maughum)
For today’s prompt I would love it if you could share experiences about various stages of writing a novel or any kind of book whether poetry or non fiction.
Sadly, I haven’t written any book. I have plans to eventually compose a poetry book from thousands of poems that I’ve written for my blog but…….
I think it’s this ‘but’ that is a pain in the b##€, as it stops our train of thoughts on the station and throws out red signals to stop our progress.
In my case it’s just plain laziness and procrastination. I have many excuses I make to myself, but they are just excuses. If I really want to do it, how hard would it be to select some good ones from already written poems and spruce them up to b we published in an e-book?
I have a feeling that if I was doing it on paper with a pen in my hand I’d be farther along thanks I’m now, which is point zero! The fact that I have to scan my blog on my laptop and select and copy the poems I want makes me want to put it off to tomorrow; and we all know, “ Tomorrow never comes”
What to do?
Wait for a miracle, or hire a tech savvy young person to help? Perhaps that’s what I’ll do!
What about you: Are you writing a book/novel? How is it going? What are the issues that you are facing?
