This works for me, it might not work for you, but I can only advise from my own experience. For me, I need to trap my entire story before I can start to analyze it too much. It's like a living thing. Once I have captured it, then I can take my time revising and polishing it. But the main point I want to make is to finish your projects by any means necessary. I used to quit on mine after the first few pages, when I was a kid, and I think that's normal, but at some point you have to finish. It will build the endurance you need to become a novelist. (less)

Kind Regards

Jennifer Alvarez Wow! That is the nicest thing I've ever heard! Thank you so much, you just gave me a warm fuzzy :)

Would you mind sharing that in a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads too?

Either way, thanks for contacting me! I hope you also like book two which should be out in a few months or so.

Have a great day!

Jennifer

Terah Edun I loved The Pet Washer! I've never seen anything like it before. It has the vibe of contempoary chic lit with the soul of epic fantasy. Kudos to you.
