I have had several people ask me how in the world I was ever able to complete a novel. These are not people who are intending to question my ability or be negative; they simply understand the crazy schedule I have kept for the past several years. Over the past month I have answered that question more times than I can count and I finally realized it all boils down to one simple thing.

I was able to complete my novel because I made writing a priority.

Like everyone else, I have entirely too many things going on in my life and it is easy to get in bed at the end of a day or running ragged but still feeling as if I have accomplished nothing. Overtime, I felt my writing was slipping further and further in the list of important things. So, when I woke up one morning a year and a half ago, I decided to write. I created a profile on elance and began applying for writing jobs. After a time, I was hired for my first ghostwriting assignment. I loved every minute of it even if my name was not on the end result. I was writing and getting paid to do so! I continued accepting a variety of writing assignment, eventually joining a writing team called Coqui Prose.

But, I still wasn’t working on *my* writing. While I now wrote every day, I was meeting someone else’s goals. So, I made the promise to work on mine in tandem. For ever goal I met, I would work on my own writing. Each day I carved a small amount of time to write at least a few lines of dialogue, several paragraphs, or one scene. Eventually, I was able to complete the entire novel.

It does not matter what goal you want to work towards in life. The only way you will be able to complete it is to make that goal a priority. And it is possible to have more than one priority; you just have to work on scheduling your priorities. I still write for Coqui Prose and feel completely blessed to be part of such an amazing group. But, I also focus on my own writing at the same time.

Writing is my passion, my priority. Take the time to find yours.

This is really important to examine the company you are going to hire for your paper writing. You must assure yourself with the quality of their work. Where they are producing the same level of quality as your assignment actually needs.


All of us have our priorities, the things that we consider are really important to us in our lives. Whether it is a little girl that can not wait to be the first female president or a drunkard trying to decide what shot he is going to take next. And when it comes to writing, it should also be your priority. Passion and love is the key for a successful writing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful article.

In one way this is the best situation to get a genuinely necessary money infusion. In another, it could be the most noticeably bad. Shame is presumably the greatest bar to moving toward companions or relatives for money to get you through extreme circumstances.


Managing obligation and searching for obligation help is a distressing circumstance. The disappointment, humiliation, and weight of attempting to end up distinctly sorted out can lead you to settle on rushed choices.
