I sat at a dinner table recently
with a newer writer.
She told the folks at the table
she wrote novels
and I cringed
because I knew what would happen next.
Everyone else piped up
that they were writing novels too.
(which is the equivalent of saying
any untrained monkey
can do this big, scary task
she’s been spending 18 hours a day,
7 days a week
The girl was upset.
So I asked this question…
“Have you finished the novel?”
Only the girl said yes
and I murmured
“THAT’s the hardest part.”
Very few finish.
But that’s a good thing
for those of us who DO finish.
As Scott Ginsberg shares
“The exciting part is,
in a society that worships incompleteness,
the people who do commit,
the people who do carry their work to execution,
are the ones that inspire us forever.”
Finish that damn project already!
