ANNIHILATION Word Count: 39,792
I have just completed the rough draft of the book. I am bombarded with the feelings I always have at this point. Will I be able to make it long enough? Will I be able to develop the characters and the plots? Basically, will I be able to turn this into a book worth reading? The first time, with my first novel, I stopped writing when I thought these questions. I glumly resolved that I was just wasting my time. But now, three books later, I’ve learned to ignore my doubts and just keep working.
The story will tell itself.
