Well, not really one million, but quite a few. The biggest challenge for a writer is to finish a work. Not starting it, but finishing it. If you can’t start a novel, you’ve got bigger issues. I would suggest therapy. And publication isn’t a challenge. There’s nothing you can do but submit your work and hope someone likes it. Even then, the best thing to do is submit and forget. Keep track of where you submit, of course. You don’t want to do multi-subs to the same market. But don’t worry about it. It’ll be a nice surprise when you get the check. Or at least that’s what I expect.
So now I’ve got two novels finished. When both are submitted, it’ll put my race score over twenty. Somewhere in the fifties is ideal for beginning writers from what I understand. One word at a time.
Now to the next hardest part, writing the outline. *sigh* I’ll let the novel sit for a few days. I’ll use those days to research markets and write the outline after I’ve had a few days distance. Oh, and I’ll be writing during that time as well, working on short stories and planning out new novels. I want to write at least six full novels this year, twelve if I’m really good.
Time to quit procrastinating and go back to work.
