Creating, either in writing or any other endeavor requires fortitude and focus.
Today, I wanted to quit early because I was tired and I’m ahead in the draft.
I thought, okay, I’ve written 7 books, this is the eighth one, I should just coast.
Then I realized, I couldn’t coast.
I had a story to write, one that I’d given up on earlier in the year and it needed to get finished as soon as possible.
I pushed through it, finished the section I’d been writing and hit 28k on the draft in 15 days.
Focus is hard with everything going on in the world.
Fortitude and resilience are important items to have in your war chest. Keep them close at hand.
