You have to write a lot. And you have to rewrite what you wrote a lot more.
I’m hard to get excited about things. And I am very aware that a novel that takes 18 months to write is going to have days when you’re excited and days when it’s a grind and days when you wish you had a proper job that didn’t involve putting words down on paper.
I always think something’s a good idea when I decide to do it, though. And I try to remember that on the grind days.
May the force be ever in your favor, Harry.
