Stamina

Wow.

I’ve been working on my next book (having finished revision round #1 on my last and setting it aside to ‘simmer’) and it’s just incredible to me how much stamina it takes to work on these novel-length writing projects. I remember when I finished my first book thinking that the idea of starting another was overwhelming. And then I forgot. And here I go again!

But I love it. There is nothing else I’d rather be doing. But it is so, surprisingly, draining. Or at least it surprises me.

Anyone who thinks writing is easy is a nutter.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
