Starting Over is Hard but Sometimes Necessary

mountain stairs

As writers we’re faced with having to

start over

with every new story,



It is not uncommon for a re-write of

our first chapter

to happen upwards of 7 or even 10+ times…

But what about starting your career over again?

I’m at a crossroads

where it is imperative that I make part-time wages

to help support my family

and my writing is barely breaking even with my expenses

at the best of times…


that means looking at my career

as a


from a whole new perspective.

It means re-imagining,




my notion of this career

and how to make it fit my life…

It’s starting over again

on the grandest of scales

and it scares the daylights out of me…


What is it about starting over that either inspires you or scares you too?
