It’s daggoned hard to write scenes. Crafting a novel is hard work. There is no easy short-cut or fast lane to the finish line. My respect for those that are brave enough to attempt a novel knows no bounds. Anyone with the fortitude to complete their novel, can do it; but steer clear of anyone who promises that is where it ends. Any help you can get from friends, family or significant others, take it with arms open wide. Its valuable. The biggest thing you need is time; time to write, re-vise, edit, repeat. Its the only thing I’ve ever done, minus giving birth to two amazing human beings, that is the most thrilling and hurting at the same time. Along the way to completing my first book of three, I have come across some outstanding books along the way that have helped and wanted to share them with anyone interested (many are probably familiar with most of these). Hope my recommendations help some along the way. Hugs, Kat.
