Here’s the thing. I’m freeing myself up from the idea that the chapter book that I’m writing for JoNoWriMo is for publication. The bottom line is that it is a story that my daughter would lovelovelove and I’m going to write it for her. I’m going to revise it and polish it and make it shiny when it’s finished. But if it’s one of those books that I never let see the light of day by anyone other than my daughter, well then, I’m okay with that. Because she’s going to love it.

Great attitude, KD! Love it!
That is an excellent choice. Did you read Linda Sue Park’s recent blog post about the need for enthusiasm for a writing project, because this reminded me of it somehow . . .
I did! And thinking that it’s just for my daughter is helping me maintain enthusiasm.
Well, I hope it sells so my daughter can love it, too! Hugs! (And I’m glad you feel that way. I need to write one of those as well!)
Let me finish it first! We’ll see. For now, I’ll just be happy if it’s a story my M really enjoys.
I love that way of thinking! Yay!
Thanks, Jo! And thanks for giving me the kick in the pants I needed to commit to it.
Awww to you. 🙂
I loved reading this, Kristy. You’re an inspiration!
Thanks, De. I think it’s the only way I can get it out. Otherwise, my internal editor ties me up and holds me hostage.
