Stubborn or Determined?

In a long ago previous post I mentioned that I had started writing my second book. I also mentioned that it was slow going. Embarrassingly slow going. Over the past months, I’ve often thought of quitting, of tossing in the towel, and doing something more useful with my time, like cleaning out the basement.

Turns out that no matter how delusional I may be about being a half-decent romance writer, (I hear you laughing.) I can’t quit writing this book. Of all the don’ts I heard growing up,Β don’t be a quitterΒ is, apparently, the one that stuck. I have no problem admitting that I can’t figure out Twitter, am perpetually late and socially inept. I don’t understand baseball, my French is appalling, and I can’t read a map…see, no sweat. I am not one whit embarrassed to admit any of these failings.

But, quit, no. I can’t even quit this blog which is nuts considering that about three people read it.

Determined or stubborn? Oh, you know, po-tay-tos, po-tah-tos πŸ™‚

  1. Do. Not. Quit. After all, we are writing for ourselves firstly. I completed my first novel little more than a year ago. There is something there I love. Something about stories… man… I just can’t explain it. Keep on going.

    1. Thanks, yes, I have to remember why I started. It used to be fun before I started second guessing myself. On a good day, it’s still fun. Today was good day πŸ™‚
      Did you put your book out there? That part is pretty scary.

    1. True. Some days I think the whole story line sucks. Some days I think I’m brilliant πŸ™‚ How do you feel about paranormal AKA vampire M/M romance? There’s a good possibility I’ll be asking you to read this when it’s done πŸ™‚

      1. No apology necessary. How would you know? Considering the kind of stuff I write, I take it as a compliment. Maybe writing under a pen name wasn’t one of my more brilliant ideas πŸ™‚
