It’s getting close now. Almost done.
The last few weeks have been slow. I think I’m still on schedule, sort of, but it’s getting tight. I need to finish the outline for two more stories and then I’m done and ready to actually start writing. I’m looking forward to it with both dread and anticipation.
It’s getting serious now.
I’m having doubts about my first story. Will it be good enough to get readers to check out the next one, and the ones after. Will it work? I think I can write a good story about an interesting character that people will want to get to know better. I know I can. What I don’t know is if I can hook a reader for long enough to get them stuck in the story. That’s the challenge.
I think the first story will work. I think. I don’t know.
That’s the scary part. The uncertainty. I’ll just have to live with that I guess. I’ve got to finish the outlines, and then sit down and have a serious think about what I’m doing with the first story.
Is it good enough?
Where is there room for improvement?
We’ll see. I might just have to trust in that the story is good enough and that I’m a good enough writer to pull it off. The time to faff around and fiddle with details is almost up. It’s almost time to hunker down and actually get things done.
It’s almost time to get the ball rolling.
