The Gratification of Progress…
April 25, 2012 § 3 Comments
I am nearing the end of my first draft, and it’s an extremely satisfying feeling – to have written an entire book. Just for a moment, on this stormy Wednesday, I don’t mind if it’s accepted or not. I’m just enjoying the feeling of completion. Or at least the close proximity to it.
Following an idea through to the end is something I rarely accomplish – in part because some of my ideas certainly don’t warrant conclusion – but today the perseverance of wading through deep, muddy waters (more than a few days felt like that) and pushing onward with this story I have grown to love, seems altogether worth it.
I think I’ll enjoy my wine tonight.
