V: I hope victory will be yours soon. Finishing the A to Z challenge is a grand victory and you should congratulate yourself. Perhaps you are finishing a book and are getting ready to search for publication. Perhaps your new book is out and now you're working on promotion to make it a bestseller. Victory is yours.
I've met writers who work for years on their manuscripts, polishing, rewriting, getting advice and yet never quite feeling ready to send it out into the world. They don't seem to want to take the next step and fight to get their story into the hands of readers.
"In war, let your great objective be victory, not lengthy campaigns." Sun Tzu
So go for victory. Finish the book. Sell the book or publish it yourself. Promote the book. Rake in the rewards of your victory.
How long did it take you to write your first book? Do you know writers taking the long campaign path?
