Sometimes I wonder what in the world I’m trying to do here… I blog every second day (pretty religiously) and have been writing every single day since the year began. I’ve penned two novels this year and am starting a third. On a whole, my motivation levels have been excellent. But every now and then I stop and wonder what in the world I’m doing?
Finding an agent, being traditionally published, selling enough novels to be able to make it a full-time career… that is a huge dream, but it’s what I strive towards. It’s what keeps me going. The idea of writing a novel that I’m proud of and creating something special out of nothing… that keeps me going. The possibility that this passion can convert into work… that keeps me going.
So I keep writing. I keep improving, because it’s what I love and what I want to do. And hey, my momentum is so good at the moment that I figure it has got to land me an agent eventually, right? 🙂 It might not be this novel, or the next, or even the next. But eventually I’ll stumble upon the magic formula. And that’s what keeps me going.
What keeps you going? What keeps you writing?
