A “I Finished Writing My Fifth Book” Freak Out Moment

I wanted to Reblog this because it’s a victory. It’s a touching story about a writer who won’t give up on her dreams. She’s tapping into a lot of the same vibes I’m hoping any who read my blog will feel. Congratulations on completing that fifth book, Nicole Evans. I hope you find success sooner rather than later, but I have little doubt it WILL happen. It’s just a matter of when.

Thoughts Stained With Ink

So, about half an hour ago, I did a thing. I finished a book. But not just any book. My fifth book. A book that I began tentatively planning earlier this spring. A book that, when I made my goals for the year, I didn’t plan to start writing until around October. Did I imagine that I would actually finish this thing this year? Hell no.
