I’ve failed my first major book goal of 2019. I wanted to relaunch my first book in January but I haven’t. Yes, I had the flu, I traveled to Turkey and New York but I still should have found time. I’m only 6 weeks into 2019 and I’m at least 4 weeks behind schedule. I’m disappointed in myself for that.
Okay. Enough of the pity party. What can I do to get going again?
Where I have been stuck is adding details in each chapter. It’s important to really put the reader into each scene. That being said, it’s a pain and sucks the motivation out of me. Additionally, I keep catching errors which at this point should be rare, but isn’t. Again, that makes me not want to look at the book.
I’ve taken some time to remember why I wrote the book in the first place. I am tired, but recommitted. Tomorrow, I will crank through as many chapters as I can. If I can keep that momentum the rest of the week then I will be done. Hopefully, I can launch the book this week. At that point, I can move on. I’ve done what I can to tell the story I imagined.
I heard somewhere that brick walls are put in front of you to find out how badly you want something. I’ve climbed many walls on this journey. I’ll climb this last one too and finish my book knowing I did my very best.
A reminder that at some point, I will stop posting here and will be posting exclusively at hareeshjayanthi.com
Hope to see you there!
