Writing success: if your writing doesn’t succeed, keep writing.
Writers get fixated on projects. A project becomes all-important. So important, that to avoid failure, they let the project die.
Why not do as Beck did? Publish. See what happens. If you keep writing, you won’t obsess. Some years ago I had a multi-book contract with a publisher. One day I was lunching with my editor, who was worried about another book coming out on a similar topic to the one I was working on. I shrugged and said: “it’s just a book.”
