And for you who want to keep this piece of inspiration around all the time, Etsy has a poster version you can buy.
Some of them really resonate for me.
#3: Trying for theme is important, but you won't see what the story is actually about til you're at the end of it. Now rewrite.
#8: Finish your story, let go even if it's not perfect. In an ideal world you have both, but move on. Do better next time.
#11: Putting it on paper lets you start fixing it. If it stays in your head, a perfect idea, you'll never share it with anyone.
#17: No work is ever wasted. If it's not working, let go and move on - it'll come back around to be useful later.
Do you see a pattern here? ; ) I keep telling myself the goal must be, finish the book, THEN worry about the small stuff.
