WHEN IS HALF OF SOMETHING, A WHOLE THING?

 

Would you buy a half-empty container of milk from the grocery store?  Would you buy a half empty container of anything that had been opened at the grocery store?  EWW!  YUCKY!  NO!  NEVER!

 

Picture this, a chair with two right legs and half of a back and half of a seat.  Or this, a table with two legs propping up the table and the other end, the top of the table resting on the floor.  Would you buy half of a chair or half of a table at a furniture store?  They would be totally unusable.  NO!  NEVER!

 

No one would intentionally buy half of anything that was partial packaged, half of what it should be.

 

So finish that first draft of your novel.  That is the best part just finishing.  Then you can fix anything in your finished first draft.  Until then you have nothing to do except finish.

 

If it is not finished, it is not anything.  It is not a novel until the first draft is finished.  It is not anything if you are planning to finish.

 

Finishing is the greatest accomplishment.  \

 

Then once you finish the first draft. 

 

NOW! 

Now you have something that you can polish, at least, until ready to publish.

 

Dear Writers and Dear Readers, let me know when you finish your first draft.  We can celebrate together.  Yippee Ki Yay!
