My current biggest failure

I think I do a lot of things well, at least the things I care about.

I’ve been working on the prologue to a book proposal for months. An agent is working with me, encouraging me, and giving me advice and I’ve made some progress, but not as much I think I could. If you search for one of my posts on “show, don’t tell,” you’ll see how long I’ve tried to develop a more showing style of storytelling. I expect my writing to start clicking, but it hasn’t yet. I also procrastinate over it a lot.

My current failure is having made so little progress over writing this prologue. Nearly everything else I’m working on I’m making more progress on.

Failure to me and most people I spend time with doesn’t mean what it means to the mainstream, so I’m not complaining. It means to us more like a learning experience. Nobody else has responsibility for finishing this writing and learning this technique.
