I've heard that so many times! Why is it so difficult to finish sometimes?
Ah, well, I guess that's just one of the fautls of the trade. ;)

Abby Annis said...

That is great advice! And sometimes so hard to do. :)

Jackee said...

Good one! I admit I always lurk around your blog and glean the marvelous quotes you have.

Thanks for this one too.

Elana Johnson said...

Very nice! Sometimes finishing is the hardest part. I have several starts to novels to prove this. :)

Michelle McLean said...

lol yep, this one seemed pretty apt for me as well - lots of novels with only 3 chapters in my files ;D

And Jackee, thanks for posting :) I like to collect quotes - I have stacks of them :D Glad to share them with you :)

Great quote. Hard to do, but oh so true.

So so true. I just finished my current WIP on Sunday - such a good feeling

Nisa said...

Ooh! Amen to that. Love it!

That's a great quote and some fabulous advice!

Kat Harris said...

That's so much easier said than done. :-)

Natalie said...

Brilliant. It seems like it should be an easy thing to do, but some days...

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Too bad it's so much easier said than done! :-)

Great advice! Now I just have to finish cleaning the bathrooms, doing the laundry, picking up the toys (which apparently Nobody dropped). But at least my novel is finished. :D
