A Journey of a Thousand Miles



It's time for February's submission for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh. For those interested in learning more about membership, please click on his name.

Confucius once said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

As many of you know, my thousand mile journey began four and a half years ago when I took on project novel. Along the way there were times when I became so frustrated that I wanted to toss my computer in the trash and run screaming for the hills. The hours of writing, re-writing then writing again were soooo daunting that I often asked myself If the novel was worth the effort.  Well, I can honestly answer that question with an emphatic YES!!!!

 I finally wrote "The End," on my draft last month. There is something to be said for seeing a complex project through to completion. To some extent that, in and of itself, is the reward.  

You see, No matter how my journey ends, regardless if I become published or not, I can take pride in knowing I took that step and I completed the journey of a thousand miles. I'm now a stronger person because of it.  Until next time my friends, happy writing.
