Last month, I began to write a novel. I’ve always wanted to write fiction. It’s one of my life goals. And year after year, I kept on delaying. Even my Master’s degree was a delay. I thought learning about fiction was a good way to become a writer. Except I never wrote much.
It’s hard to write. You write embarrassing prose. Your story sucks. Your dialogue is friggen terrible. You feel immature.
This is why most people don’t start things: because the beginning is the hardest part of the climb.
But a year from now, I’ll be glad I choose this as the year to begin. And when I’m thirty, I’ll be glad I began writing in my twenties.
A successful life really begins with a conscious choice to begin. You need to decide to take that first step. And you can’t wait for inspiration to move you.
