The importance of starting
As mentioned in some of my previous posts, I’m revisiting a Lizzie Benton manuscript I started writing all the way back in 2019. Now that I’ve had a chance to read what I had written a few years ago, I’m actually pleasantly surprised to find that I’m quite pleased with the writing and the premise! Interestingly, it occurred to me that I might not have come up with this premise or approach had I started today, since I have a different focus and set of experiences relevant to me now. I believe I started this particular manuscript at the exact right time in 2019, even if I could not finish writing the entire book then.
Therefore, I am reminded of the importance of starting. How many times do we have an idea and not write it down or pursue it? As much as I possibly I can, I start my ideas at a minimum. It’s even better if I can finish them, but starting is better than nothing. You just have to be careful to not fall into the cycle of starting a lot of things and never finishing! My thoughts for today. Have a good Monday!
