Week 15: Time to Interview

It’s Week 15 of my First Book Project, and I’ve taken a step back, reflected on the 20,000 words I’ve written so far (so proud), and evaluated for next steps.

As I mentioned last week, this is usually the time in the cycle when I lose steam and give up, but this time I am armed and ready to rally.


Week 6: Perseverance (Current Word Count = 7108)

“Breakthroughs come from putting an inordinate amount of pressure on yourself, and seeing what you can take, and hoping that you grow some new muscles. It’s not really that mystical.” — Ta-Nehisi Coates

There is no shame in talking about the painfulness of writing. There is no shame in being honest about the process.
