Perhaps you've heard the advice to "write everyday". I've heard this advice first hand from published authors, I've read it in writing journals, and I've told myself to do the same thing. Although, I usually interpret the "everyday" part to "Monday thru Friday" because as much as I would love to write on Saturdays and Sundays, it usually doesn't happen because that's family time.
During my pregnancies, 40 weeks seemed so long and far away, but once I hit 30 weeks into my pregnancy, I then began the 10-week-countdown and suddenly, those 10 weeks flew and before I knew it I had a beautiful baby in my arms. My book is like another "pregnancy" so-to-speak. It's growing and developing and now that I'm working on the last 100 pages, I feel like I've begun the 10-week-countdown again. Baby steps to the big finale - a complete book that I've written.
Continue to write words, paragraphs, and pages and soon those small steps will result in a finished piece of work.
Below is a poem I found amongst my 7-year-old's school papers and wanted to share his Small Steps representing Spring.
|Daffodils from our front yard|
Spring has sprung.
Put on your rain boots.
I love Spring.
Nothing but mud.
Going to the park.
Stay inspired and continue to write,
