Write a Novel. Complete a Novel

Somehow, I always manage to come across someone’s novel writing advice. Either it falls into my internet lap, or I search for it when I’m bored.

Where You Spend Time

Many people have often made the comment, “It must be nice being a full time writer.” My response, “Meh.” I love being at home, but I hate writing full time. I love having hours to write, but I hate being at home all the time. This is human nature. At least it’s my nature. Naturally, it’s very confusing. Am I a full time writer? Presently, yes. I recently quit my job to study for an exam. (Don’t ask how that exam went. It’s over. That’s all I know.) Because I…
