Chuck Wendig’s Writer’s prayer should be compulsory reading for all writers. Go read it, read it now. I’ll wait…
Did you read it? Of course you didn’t. I’ll give you another chance to follow the link…
Hillarious right? But true. Here are the concluding lines:
I am the Commander of these words.
I am the King of this story.
I am the God of this place.
I am a writer, and I will finish the shit that I started.
Go print these words out, laminate them and stick them up over your writing desk/area. Speaking as someone who’s started plenty of novels and only nearly finished one it’s up on my wall. I even put it in bold.
