Because this is an assignment, I was able to keep up with the novel and the blog. But what happens after I've finished? Will I still have the desire to finish and complete this book with my whole heart? I like to believe that I will but the future is something I'm unsure of. Things can get in the way and change plans but I'd love to keep myself focused on this project.
I'm so close to the end it's very exciting, but I know that my word count will go way over 50,000 words, but of course, not more than 120,000. Publishers don't want new writers to have books over 120,000 words. I'm hoping that I can get this published in a few months when I feel like it's ready.
Feeling like it's ready is going to take work. While I'm reading I keep finding myself comparing it to people like JK Rowling or Suzanne Collins which is not good because there's nobody who can write like them. But there are some ways I can at least calm myself down about my own work.
To get this to it's full potential I'm going to have my friends read it, point out parts that need editing, go over it myself multiple times, and trust in myself with this. But it helps that I have so many people around me wanting to read it.
