The First Hurdle

Deep breath…

Here we go.

When can you call yourself a writer? The closer I got to finishing my first novel – the more I seem to ask myself that question.

Was it when I finished the first sentence? The first chapter? Both were dreadful – both now heavily edited and, in my own opinion, improved upon.

140,000 words, heavy edits and sleepless nights where my thoughts were racing through the myriad of characters and the problems I needed to solve – finally, I feel as though I can call myself a writer.

The first hurdle is behind me; now, the real work begins.

Deep breath…

Here we go.
