Stuck & Discouraged

Since I know it happens to writers all the time, I shall be transperant and share with my readership that I am doubting my ability to do this.  Do what? To write this book well enough.  I’ve written the book and it is good, but good is not good enough.  I need outstanding and I don’t think I’m there.  Do I have the heart to take it back a notch or two, take a big breath,  and write extraordinarily?

  1. Your book sounds fascinating! Getting all those thoughts sorted out, and down on paper, so someone else can absorb your story–wow, awesome. That’s the hard part!

    I love a well written book. Even, I (me?) who can barely write, have read too many books where even I could have done a better editing job.

    A job worth doing….

    Make it shine!

    • Rob,
      Thank you for your encouraging words. I appreciate each one. Writing a book has been a real journey. In my first post on this blog, I compare writing this book to pregnancy because it actually seems to have taken on a life of it’s own. I’ve also done lots of rewriting. Most people don’t realize how important it is to rewrite and rewrite and rewrite. I didn’t.

      I would be curious how you hooked up to my blog. I haven’t had much traffic and it would help to know what is working.

      Take Care and thanks again,
      Marsha T.

  2. Don’t get discouraged I know that you have what it takes to do whatever needs to be done to get this book published! Your an incredibly wise and perseverant woman! I know you can do it!
