I’ve come to a momentous decision.
By the end of this week (that’s Sunday at 11.59p.m. because the week begins on Monday) I will finish the second draft of Chocolates on My Pillow. About two years after I had planned to finish and publish the actual novel.
Actually for the first third of the manuscript, this will be the fifth/sixth draft but after that I went downhill.
Now, however, I know why.
I know why I was holding back. I know why I was letting life get in the way and using it as an excuse for not getting on with it. Sure, getting surgery, buying house, moving house, new job, new new life, bla bla bla … big stuff. But just excuses.
I will have it done by Sunday. Because enough is enough.
Once you open the door, it’s time to walk through it.
