I'm working on my Big Book. Actually, it'll probably turn out to be 5 books or more.
I've been working on this for 5 years I think. I've started innumerable drafts, finished some, tossed some away, started from scratch 5 or 6 times. It's a Big Story -- spanning generations, etc. It's all-consuming when I work on it. These characters take root in my head and just live there for months at a time.
I love working on it but I despair of ever getting it Right. I feel like I'm doomed to always write a rough draft.
Maybe this time.
Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. Keep writing. Keep writing.
