Okay, this is truly a rambling post, so feel free to ignore it.
Just some random thoughts this morning.
I just typed "The End" on my 19th book.
14 of those have been published.
A couple of them will probably never see the light of day.
But as I sit here writing this morning, I have to wonder...
Will I ever feel like I have this writing thing down?
I know, I know...
Writing is hard.
I know that.
It takes self-control and discipline to sit down and transpose the images in my head into words on paper.
Every single day.
But I kind of thought at this point, that I would feel like...I could do this.
And not doubt every word and turn of phrase.
Every character...and their motivation.
Every idea in my head that sounds so amazing when I think about writing it BEFORE I start.
But that's not the reality for me as a writer.
When will I stop feeling like a beginner?
Maybe when I've written 50 books...
I'll hit that point where I can sit back and say,
"Yeah, I got this."
As I write the book.
But probably not.
