Out of the Quagmire

Every time I slog through the middle of a book, I think I will never finish. Yesterday, I added 1500 words to my rough draft, and for the first time, I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m told other authors feel this “muddle in the middle” as well. As long as I can’t share in the prestige and remuneration of my more successful colleagues, it’s nice to know we have neurosis in common.

    I’m in a similar spot! Never heard the phrase “muddle in the middle” before, but it’s definitely what I’m feeling. Glad to know that I’m not the only one. I mean, not that I’m glad you experienced it. 😛 But it is nice to know you made it past that point. Thanks for sharing! And the best of luck on finishing your book. 🙂
