What I'm Writing: While I wait on feedback from my beta reader, I decided it was time to finally dig into my Camp NaNoWriMo novel for revisions. I read through the whole thing and I want to cry. God, it's terrible.
But, I have to constantly remind myself that writing is rewriting. There are characters, lines and plot lines that I really love. But there's a lot of junk in there and it's super short. I wrapped it up at 50k, and I want to get it to around 65k. There's more to the story and characters, I just need to dive in there to find it.
What Works For Me: This is a new question that threw me completely off guard. While I'm glad I won't be haunted by the the inspiration section from now on, I am kind of peeved because I actually had something inspiring to share. Don't worry, I put it under What Else I've Been Up To.
Honestly, I don't know what works for me. I wrote more in the summer months because school consumed my life. Now that I'm out of school and I start my job next week, I have to figure out how this is going to work. I want to have a career in theatre, while still continuing my publishing journey. Hopefully with this new section added to the blogs I can get some ideas and finally set a writing pattern. :D
What Else I've Been Up To:
|Me w/Sarah J Mass|
Two years ago, Susan and Sarah hosted a NaNoWriMo word battle on Twitter. I participated, and honestly, without them I wouldn't have completed NaNo, which meant no Suspension of Disbelief. I let them know how much that meant to me and Sarah gave me a hug.
Hopefully we'll meet again. Who knows maybe things will be different.
