I am not sure if its the same for every first time writer however there are times when I wonder if I should be putting my time and effort into something else. The thing that actually gets me to continue writing are the characters I created. Forty thousand words into my book and I feel like my characters deserve an ending to their story. Weird?
I am only half way through, and hope I don’t lose the drive to finish my story.
Side note: Why did my first story have to be so long?!
