Writing Mindset

Too often we think about what will happen to our book when it’s finished.

How long is it going to take to get to the end?

How is it all going to work out?

Will we be able to finish it to our satisfaction?

Will anyone read it?

Will anyone like it?

Will everyone hate it?

Where will we submit it?

What if it’s accepted?

What if it’s rejected?

What if it’s our big break?

What if it’s a waste of time?

Focusing on the end result can produce anxiety and distract us from the task at hand, which is being in the present moment with our story.

Don’t worry about what will happen in the future.

Get up and go to work.

Success is inevitable if you show up every day and do your best.
