So I thought I’d do a post on the ups and downs of a writer’s journey – but then I thought! How about relate that to another epic journey! And what’s more epic than The Lord of the Rings?
So here goes…
One day a little voice in your head nags at you telling you to write a book. You love reading! Challenge accepted!
You don’t know the way just yet…but it can’t be that hard right?
Then you come up with that idea (you know the one that possesses your very soul!?) and you just can’t stop thinking about it! You can’t share it with anyone yet though because it’s just too special…
And then you hit a block. You can’t pass it. It seems insurmountable! The words just won’t come!
But somehow you make it! You finish the novel! Now all that’s left is to ask a friend to read it. They finish it and tell you it’s great, they loved it! But how can you trust them? They would say that, wouldn’t they? They don’t wanna hurt your feelings…
But then you look through your novel one more time and…it’s alright! It reads well! You love the characters! It’s the story you fell in love with in the beginning!
You made it!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Good luck with your writing – and remember if a hobbit can destroy the one ring…you can definately write a book worth reading
