Just Writing: Determination In Beginning A Novel

Well, we’ve all had those days when we wonder “What would it be like to write a book?” and then we go take a seat in front of our computers, pens and papers, waiting for the right idea to come along. Sometimes, the idea is already there, but that’s when procrastination kicks in, and we’re left saying “I’ll do it later.”

Months pass, years pass, and time just escapes us. This beautiful idea of yours has withered away to the back of your mind, when it could’ve been something beautiful. Who knows? Everyone has the ability to become the next J.K. Rowling if  you want it bad enough.

Though, it isn’t easy. It takes work, dedication, and patience. None, of which I wanted to go through when I first finished a book. Though, programs like NaNoWriMo really help to polish your writing skills. There’s no saying that what’s written will be accepted by the public, and there are harsh critics out there, but the important thing is that you’re happy with what you’ve written.

That, above all is most important. Once, the journey played out by your characters has brought you satisfaction, that is when a writer is successful. I may be sixteen, and haven’t had a chance to enter the publishing world yet, but I’m working towards my goal everyday. The slightest bit of effort pays off, so go ahead, listen to that little voice in your head telling you to write a novel, and if it’s what you truly want, then go for it!

“There’s a writer inside us all. It just takes the right set of words to bring it out.”

Thanks for reading! ♥

P.S. Thank you guys so much for all the feedback! There’s no describable feeling for knowing that people actually read what you’ve written. Thanks again! ♥
