Another week down. If you’re finding it hard to stick with your novel, you’re not alone.
And staying married to a novel when you reach that stage is also work. It’s so much easier to let yourself be seduced by the new idea that’s walked in the door in its skin-tight leather pants and is giving you a smoldering come-hither look that promises it’s going to rock your world.
— Sarah Monette, “The novel as marriage”
