The Thing About Getting Older & Undertaking a Huge Writing Project

by Shelt Garner

As I continued to work on this 5 novel project, I also continue to realize that I have a very finite amount of time left on this earth. I’ve officially reached put up or shut up time.

I know I should be reading as much as I’m writing, but it’s really difficult. It’s difficult because I feel angst about reading when I should be writing. I need to wrap up the first book in this 5 novel project ASAP so I can start working on the next book.

I just feel a lot of angst overall.

I just feel like it’s too late. That I should just sit in my bed and stare at the ceiling and feel guilty. It’s really too late to make any meaningful change in my life because if I get what I want, I will be judged by when it happened.

You’re supposed to sell your first novel when you’re young and cute, not old a grizzled.

Every time this happens, however, I dust myself off and throw myself back into writing.
