IN THE BEGINNING....
When I began writing I thought, "this is going to be really hard." I'd written a few thousand words before, even as much as 20,000 for my dissertation, but a novel? How does that go? I wondered whether my imagination would run out! Would I write all there was, till my brain was an empty husk of nothingness?
Thankfully that didn't happen. I wrote 40,000 words before I stopped the first time. After that it was relatively simple to run off several thousand words at a sitting. I naively believed that 'writing' was the hardest part. How wrong was I? Writing is the easy part. I hear people say "I'd like to write a book and I chuckle now thinking, you don't know the half of it. It's not the writing, its the word 'book'. That's where all the headache ( and heartache) lies.
