Quotes to Start Your Writing Week

A short post today to get me (and you) going, to keep me (and you) in my seat (at Starbucks) and push through to the bitter end. Not that the end of UNTIL DEATH is bitter, but, you know what I mean, right? I'm close, so close to finishing what I hope will be my final draft before queries. Wish me luck.

These two quotes tell us all we  need to know about plot:

If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else. -Yogi Berra

It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

In otherwords, know your ending and you'll know your beginning. Know your ending and you'll be less likely to end up on a tangent plot line. And make every word (step) count, each one bringing you closer to your goal (The End). We all know that already, but a point to remember when revising (cutting) and tightening (deleting our gems).

Easy, right? HA! Good luck to you all. .

Now, go write-NOW!

    I'm waiting for my beta readers' comments and trying to survive my daughter's 6:00 am swim practice.


I heart comments.
