Writing a novel is a marathon, not the 100 yard dash. I’m a sprinter, not a marathon runner. By nature, I’m a race horse. I like short term projects that I can work fast and furious on and then move on to the next thing. Novel writing is plow horse work. I’m out of my comfort zone and having a lot of fun but it’s a new challenge for me. I am pressing on and digging in. The end result of a day’s for the plow horse is a field ripe for planting and then harvesting, correct?
What about you? Are you a plow horse or race horse? How does it affect the work you do every day?
For all my ROWing friends, I’ve placed a blog hop at the end of this post to make it easy for you to find and encourage a fellow ROWer.
