You can Write a Novel If You Try Hard Enough

You're a blogger, right?  You come up with one to three posts a day?  Your fingers are never idle and they're always clicking your keyboard?

 

And now here's the thought.  Do you think you have it in you to write a novel?  If you can produce three lengthy posts a day on your blog, chances are, you would be able to do that to a novel.

 

Say, you want to commit to a chapter a day seven days a week.  It can be done.  Don't tell me you don't have it in you.  You can do it.  All you have to have is the dream to think up your story line and write it down as you go.

 

You don't have to have the whole plot mapped out in the first few chapters.  Just write your novel and something will start to appear.  Maybe you secretly think you can be another James Patterson who pumps out three or four novels in a year.  

Try it and see what happens.  What if you seriously could come up with two novels a year even.  It can be done.

 

Even writing 10,000 words a day can be done.  I can produce at least 1,000 in one of my blog posts and I bet if I stuck with it, I could probably come up with 10,000 words if I tried hard enough.

 

My problem is that I spend a good chunk of the day visiting other blogs and commenting, then going to facebook and commenting under my fb page.

 

But I should seriously crack down and get working on my novels.  I did write another chapter yesterday to The Glorious Money Tree and then I started to write down the beginnings of the chapter after that.  

 

But if I could simply choose some days to just churn out some chapters to the novels, they could be done sooner.

 

I've got other ideas brewing for other novels, from my STORY LINE STARTERS on my blog. Any number of them could be potential novels.

But, I think a lot of writers stray from writing a novel, as it takes so much time and they feel that there isn't enough time in the day for them to complete this major task.

This is when, your concience tells you to just do it.  Don't hesitate.  Begin it now and see it to completion.
