Have you ever noticed that sometimes, we procrastinate with taking action on our goals because we think, “it’s not yet the right time”? We’re waiting for one thing or the other before we take the next step towards achieving our dreams. Perhaps we think it might be better to wait for a new week, or a new month or a new year before we begin a project.
But that’s not necessarily true. The most important thing you can do when it comes to success, especially with starting a new project is, get in the game. Just start. Take one small step towards it.
Have you always desired to write a novel? Maybe you’ve dreamt of being a published author, maybe you want to be the next Chimamanda Adichie or Lola Shoneyin. Maybe you just want to see your name on a bestselling book that people are raving about. Or maybe, you just want to prove to yourself that you are a writer and you can commit to writing a novel.
So what’s stopping you? Perhaps you’ve been too busy to start writing. Perhaps the process of writing seems confusing, even intimidating. Perhaps you’ve managed to put a few chapters together but you got stuck. Maybe you’ve even written a whole draft but you know it’s not good enough yet. You wish you could get somebody to help you make sense of the whole writing process, and help you get to the finish line.
