My Novel = Not That Bad

Wow, I've been going over it again and revising it and I realized something today: It's not that bad. I mean it. Really. Here I was griping about the merry-go-round of the whole thing and I see now that it's all been to good effect. My novel is far more interesting. The characters are dynamic. The pacing is fine. The dialogue is distinct. I'm even fixing up some of the more dull descriptions. In short, I might end up querying the novel because even if no agent finds it to their taste, it'll be because of random matters like over-saturation of the market, or Fantasy not being successful enough, or it being too Australian, or too many good novels coming in. In short, it won't be because I'm a crap writer. Perhaps I won't be 'good enough' or my subject matter won't be. But the novel is actually *gasp* okay!


  1. Isn't that a happy place to be?

  2. Excellent! Isn't it nice to wake up one day and say, "Wow. I'm a pretty darn good writer!"

    Yay, that rebel, Olivia
