“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” - Toni Morrison
Writing is hard work. I usually like to imagine myself punching anyone who says otherwise right in their little naive faces. That being said, you have to find a way to track your progress and make sure you’re actually writing the damn book.
It’s important to not only see how far you’ve come, but to work out issues you come to while writing.
