Book In A Year Series-Month 9: At Peace With The Final Draft

Write.

Write the story that you want, so you can have the ending you want–or the ending that you want to change. I want you to know that as a writer, you are still in control of the worlds you create, maintain and share.

YOU. No one else.

So, the only person that can dictate when at story is over–is you. Write what you want, first and foremost. After that is written, rest and review it. Add to it, let other people read it and get feedback! Make changes! It’s okay to doubt, and add to the work at the same time.

Trust me, it happens.

Read again, let more people read again. Add more story if you need it! Then, begin to ask yourself this question: “Do I have anything else to add?” If you don’t start to wrap it up, polish it up, and get it ready for the world.

They are waiting for it! Be brave!

Write for you first, but eventually let the world know how amazing you are. Once you admit that you have written all that you wanted, with your imagination in its final form, it’s done.

Don’t second guess.

Don’t doubt.

Let the work be complete.

There are more stories to tell…I promise.
