Now is the time that you should be working on those new manuscripts. Why? Because during the summer most major publishing houses do not bring out new books.
This gives the rest of us a chance to get our books out there
You have to take one day at a time and remember that even when you want to give up on writing or being published; you can't.
So when I want to give up I just remember what I normally do.
One day at a time is how I approach my writing.
One day I sit and think of the concept.
One day I begin typing without an outline.
One day I finish and then begin to re-read it and then One day it is ready.
Where are you in your process?
Are you beginning your writing, one day at a time?
