Sometimes I get frustrated with my writing. I think I am never going to be published.
I wonder why I waste my time (and it is very time consuming).
I think I should be out there trying to do something to help contribute to the family income, because I fear I am never going to be able to do that with my writing.
But then the excitement creeps back.
I am nearing the completion of a manuscript that I have worked on, off and on, down through the years. I see how much better it is now than when I finished that first draft of it years ago.
I see the changes. I see the ending. And, I fall in love with it.
Even if it is never published the traditional way, I am happy with my accomplishment. I see how I have grown and how my manuscript has grown. In addition, I see how it has actually become a good story that I am proud to have written.
That is when the excitement comes back.
