You Know You're a Writer [3 of 10]

My first marathon changed me. It turned me into a runner. Took me 8.5 hours to complete it. Do the math, that's merely a walking speed of 3.1 mph. I did a walk/jog combo and stopped to enjoy the Alaska scenery and take some photos every few miles. My second marathon 2 years later was 6.5 hours. Yep, I had to do it again. Crazy runner.

Make it to the Finish Line


You know you're a writer when you struggle to finish the book in the first place. You might even start complaining about it. But you're in love with the story. You might fight with the words, but that's okay. You gotta spit them out first. Then you can spin them into a beautiful piece of art.

Write the Next Book


You know you're a writer when you just wrote the most difficult thing ever and you swear you'll never do it again, but then you do anyway. When I finished my picture book biography, I swore I'd never write another biography again! But before I even got my agent, I already had more ideas to write, not one, but FIVE more biographies. I just have to tell these stories!!! Trust me, it's gonna feel like running a marathon.

What's something difficult you said you didn't want to do again, but yet you changed your mind and planned a repeat? Share in the comments!

Keep on keepin' on...
