I have found that working on a manuscript of any kind, whether it be for a book or even a paper, takes a lot of time that just doesn't seem to be in adequate supply. I find myself at the end of the day wiping the sweat from my brow and wondering a) why I am so tired and b) where did all the time go? So many times, the best prepared plans to sit and write get laid to waste by the demands of the day. I know that I cannot be the only aspiring author to have this particular issue, and I hope and pray that this is not always going to be the case.
That being said, I have managed, in between washing my husband's clothes, cooking, cleaning and working on school work (I am still working on an undergrad degree at this time) to commit close to 4,000 words to paper (well, computer, lol). I feel pretty good about what I have done, but there are times where I wonder when I will be able to sit down and dedicate myself to this project.
I guess part of my problem lies with my stellar track record of starting something and then either never finishing it or it taking years to finish. I worry that this will turn out like the crocheted blanket project that I have been "working" on for 2-3 years. (Honey, I promise, I will finish your blanket, but...I can't say for sure when!) So, here is my question to you: do you run into this same problem? What have you done to "correct" it? Believe me when I say, I am all eyes and ears, so please, by all means, let me know!
Well, I guess that is enough insecurity for one day! I wish you all a fantastic week, and for those of you who dream, remember to go for that goal, and never, ever give up!
