Have you ever felt the need to rush your writing just to get it done? As you know, I am working on a draft of my debut novel Metallic Heaven. I want to get it out by the end of the summer, so I have decided to write a chapter a day for the second draft. However, I have come to realize that putting such a goal on oneself is unrealistic. Sometimes, it’s tough to push yourself to such a commitment. It has taken me a long time, but I realized that taking a day off once in a while will not hurt my writing. In fact, my novel will probably benefit from it.
How many of you have felt the pressure of self-imposed deadlines, only to realize that they are not important?
