For years, I wrote non-fiction. Whip up an article--send it out. Hear back in a reasonable amount of time. Sometimes within the day. Yes or no. If yes, it would be published within another six months or so and voila! A check would arrive.
That's why I'm in the hate part of writing fiction
Where's the feedback, the instant gratification, the payoff?
So right now, you're groaning and saying Terri, Terri--the gratification is in the writing itself! Knowing you did a good job! Opening up your laptop and seeing your word count rise.
I hear you. That's why the love part.
But I looked back over the past year and realized maybe I need some of that instant stuff. Am I falling into the ways of our society? Got to have it fast?
But then there's my WIP. Ahhhh. I have to admit. I love it. I just wish the process of writing a book moved along a little bit faster.
How about you? Are you satisfied with your relationship with writing books or do you sometimes crave that need to get some of your work out there a little bit sooner?
