Seeds That Have Already Grown into Novels

As a writer, it’s easy to get lost in the wash of goals and aspirations that always seem just out of reach…

What I find that helps is to think of one of the novels I’ve finished, and remember back to what my very first inspiration for writing it was — a character? an idea?

Once I have that story seed in mind, I try to remember back to that feeling of hoping someday to have written a whole novel about it.

I sit with that feeling a few moments.

Then I remind myself: that whole book exists now; I actually wrote it.

This always makes me feel better.
