One Thing That Will Put You Ahead of 100 Other Writers Every Day

“I want to write a novel, but I just don’t have the time.”

That’s what I hear from people after they find out I wrote my first novel.

Novels don’t just happen. They take a lot of persistence and super hard work:

  • Waking up early to write before work.
  • Saying no to hanging with friends.
  • Cancelling weekend plans.
  • Pulling your hair out over plot points.
  • Contemplating life for three hours in the shower.
  • Crying (lots and lots of crying).

But I know that every time I spend even just 1 hour writing, I’m doing what 100 others aren’t. And that’s putting me ahead of the game, little by little.

If you’re thinking of writing a novel, I encourage you to sit down, open a word document, and just start typing 🙂
