Jour Trente: pretty close to daily compost

Having trouble finishing? Is it perhaps because it feels a little…sudden? A little ruthless? Maybe you, like Truman Capote, believe that

“Finishing a book is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it.”

Or perhaps you feel it is slightly more gentle or bittersweet, like William Feather who said that: “Finishing a book is like leaving good friend.”


Or maybe you just feel kind of done with what youre writing and you feel more like Oscar Wilde who said that

“Books are never finished, they are merely abandoned.”

(but if you take that stance…beware.)

Whatever the case, all writer’s seem to agree on at least one thing: Finish it.
