The only way to become an author is to finish the story. You can have the greatest idea in the world but you need to get it written. Talking about writing isn’t writing. Reading about writing isn’t writing. Bragging about writing a book isn’t writing.
WRITING IS WRITING.
Finish the book. Once you finish, then you can edit and look for a publisher/editor/agent and all the other stuff. Until you finish the book, everything else is procrastination.
Great Writing Advice!
