“To begin, begin.”
Yeah! This is easier for some than for others, though.
When faced with a big project like writing a novel, writers have different approaches—and it has a lot to do with personality.
For some, starting is easy. It’s the ongoing effort they have trouble with.
For others, it’s the opposite: they’ll put off starting as long as possible, but once they get the first few words on paper, they’re off to the races and nothing seems to stop them.
What’s easier for you? Let us know in the comments below.
