Writing is not easy. Writing a novel is mountain climbing. I wake up and look at the work ahead with a mixture of excitement and dread. I have been handed a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle with only a general idea of what the end result should look like. I'm overwhelmed and the best advice I'm getting is to just get the words on paper, don't stress, work on it bit by bit. But when I sit down my muse tells me "You don't have to write something perfect. Just write something amazing."
