Start at the Right Time

When we start something new, we look for the right time. If we’re going to commit to this undertaking, we want to make sure it has the best possible chance of success.

What qualifies as the right time?

Is it when we have everything in place? Is it when our schedules aren’t too busy? After our holidays, Monday morning, or when our astrologer says the planets are in a favourable alignment according to our birth charts?

The truth is, there is no such thing as the right time. There is only ever the current time; the messy, inconvenient now. Whatever it is you want to start—a daily writing habit, a new novel, your marketing strategy—start it today.


About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
