The Best Time To Start

It may not surprise you to hear that the best time to start is right now. Your idea might not work. You won’t have all the bugs worked out. Things will go wrong along the way. Still, the best time to start is now because now is all there is.

Perfection isn’t important. The only thing that matters is that you start. Start from wherever you are with whatever you’ve got.

That’s how books get finished; an author sits down and starts. She’s tired and she doesn’t know if her idea will work, but she starts. And tomorrow, she’ll start again because tomorrow will be now.

I’m starting this blog. I’m calling it The Write Mind and tomorrow, I’ll start it again. What will you start?

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.
