I've been struggling to find an idea that I wanted to carry to full term, but luckily I've been doing a Creative Writing Dissertation this year; we have to write the first three chapters of a novel along with our research question and an analysis of our own work. It's forced me into writing 5000 words so far and after I've graduated it's an idea I'll happily finish
One more thing I wanted to ask: I realise that not all published books will succeed very well and some may barely sell at all, but is it generally very hard to get published? I always doubt my own work while i'm writing even though I've never received less than a first for my creative work and my tutors seem to love it.
I'd post some but I'm afraid of plagiarism software picking up on it so I can't yet

I'm doing a dark fantasy genre story. I tried to make it more original, so no elfs or orcs etc.. I've done about 6000 words so far, a prologue and chapter 1.
I hope you do well, and you get your work published xo
