I read this article and thought—OK, I am not as lost as I thought, having many things in the works that she said would be helpful in writing a novel. Mainly and most importantly, write something you want to read yourself, that you feel passion for–which I am happy to conclude that I do in fact desire to read already what I have written. And secondly, I love the idea of making milestones, such as chapters, and after a chapter is finished, print it out. Do not edit as you go, but see it stack on itself. More importantly, reading this I am truly ASHAMED at how little time I am allotting to this goal of writing a novel! This is a passion, so time to get passionate!!!
