Personally, novel writing hasn't crossed my mind until fairly recently, and I was thinking of getting into it. I know that just because I read a lot of books, that doesn't mean I'm able to write one myself, but I am motivated by the challenge. I know that only 1-2% of a person's work ever gets published, and the very idea of that small a number of works making it into people's hands made me respect my favorite authors even more. The only problem is that actually getting published is such a difficult process.
Currently, I'm writing a story that I've been working on for about 15 months. I hope to have it finished soon.
What do you all think?
