First of all, I’d like to thank every one of you for taking time to read and comment concerning the time management post. I had such awesome words of encouragement and fantastic ideas. While reading all the comments, I got a few tears in my eyes. That might sound silly, but the idea that people I’ve never met face to face, felt it was important enough to share their own struggles and suggestions, well, it meant a lot to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Now, as I’ve mentioned before, I have some short stories published, and I’m always pondering the idea of what story would make a good novel. The short story that I have out for submission now…I can’t stop thinking about it. I don’t feel it’s finished. It’s not finished inside me, but I’m not a 100% positive it’s the first novel. I know, that just because I can’t say good-bye to the story yet, doesn’t necessarily mean I need to write the rest of it. OR, does it?
I know many of you have written a full length novel, so how did you know it was the right story?
I am currently reading K.M. Weiland’s book “Outlining Your Novel Map Your Way To Success”. I honestly thought it would be boring, but it’s the opposite. I love it. I hate outlining too, but there are all these options. Anyway, I’ll save that for another day.
So that’s where my thought process is. I’ve tried writing another short story, but I keep going back to the last one. Maybe I’m just emotionally vested in it.
Until Next Time…
