Finally, I Have Finished This Chapter

Published by TheWritingWriter in the blog TheWritingWriter's blog. Views: 94

Finally! Success! Some remnant of progress! It has taken me about six days, but I've finally finished chapter six of my main novel. This is just one of those chapters that are just boring to write. I already have everything planned out, and it's just takes physical work to get it written, no more artistic expression to it.

I've told myself the last three days that I would finish the chapter! "I'll finish it tonight! I just know it!" And of course...I became distracted, jaded, and quit for the night. But finally tonight, even if I had to keep coming back to it after many breaks, I finished the chapter. Now the easy part - proofread & edit, & then I'll send it off to a friend & post later. I don't even care about posting it, really. I'm just glad I made progress. It's normally chapters like this that keep me from finishing a book. Perhaps I can do this. I can finally teach myself the discipline and conjure up the motivation to do this.

I am so relieved.
