I saw someone ask this question on Julia Kagawa’s Twitter account and thought it was the best question ever!
I guess what has surprised me the most, is how driven I am. When I set my mind to something, and commit… I’m really good at getting stuff done. I have a lot of ambition and a lot of drive, and it’s really nice to know how deeply I can commit to something when I’m truly passionate about it.
I’ve also been surprised by how amazing momentum is. It always takes a little while to get started, but once you do, things just come together. Then before you know it, you have one novel, then two… I feel like if I keep doing what I’m doing, then incredible things will happen.
I really am a goal-orientated Capricorn 🙂 Good to know.
What about you guys? What has surprised you the most about your writing journey? What golden nuggets have you discovered about yourself? Good or bad.
