Perception determines how we see, or think about, a thing. Five pounds is neither light nor heavy until we compare it to something else.
Likewise, writing a novel is neither easy nor difficult until we compare it to something else. There was a time when writing a book seemed like a monumental task to me. Now, with three books in progress and an editing business in full swing, writing one book seems like a relatively light workload.
How does our perception of our writing goals influence our success? What would happen if we chose to see things differently?
