The Main Reasons You Never Finished Your Story/Book

Your story -Your responsibility

You have beautiful place, original story, unique characters, book structure, everything is like a HD movie in your head. But on the paper you can count few pages what you did in months. You are frustrated, trying so hard to finish it but it is not working. You are doubting yourself, thinking if you even have the talent/skill, even though you know that you have.

Some writers are able to write many pages in few weeks but for most of us it is a question of months.

If you have a feeling that writing your book or story is taking too long, probably you are doing one of these mistakes:

  • Thoughts about that you need to write a perfect part or chapter to move on
  • Being afraid to strike off unnecessary text and keeping thinking about it
  • Spending more time doing research for your book to make it more colorful
  • Reading the finished chapters over and over again and criticizing your work
  • Blocking yourself from moving on with corrections on chapters
  • Looking for spelling errors and grammar
  • Getting distracted by future possibilities related to your book/story

What have the points above in common?
What is actually the main reason that you never finished your book/story?

  • You are actually not writing AT ALL.
  • Thinking about perfect part is NOT WRITING.
  • Researching for your artwork is NOT WRITING.
  • Criticizing yourself IS NOT WRITING and it is BLOCKING you with you progress.

You are simply procrastinating with your book.
Whenever you like it or not. You are finding excuses to procrastinate. Knowingly or unknowingly.
If you can see yourself in the few points you are stopping yourself from continuing.
And you will probably never finish even your first version of a book or story.

If you aren't writing, you can't finish your text, never.
