Last year I was able to complete NaNoWriMo and write 50k words of a novel in the month of November.
I haven’t really looked at what I wrote since then. I didn’t really have time in December and I knew I wanted to change a lot of things so I thought I’d start working on it again in the new year.
I have however been making lots of plans, jotting down ideas on how I can improve it and where I want the story to go. Now I’ve gotten to the point where I have opened the document and sorted out my notes and I’m basically rewriting the whole thing.
I kind of figured during NaNoWriMo this was going to happen because I was having a lot of issues with this one character. Who happens to be a main character and is basically in every scene.
So yes, I’m rewriting a character which means I’m rewriting everything. I was a little disheartened by this at first until I saw this tweet…
So I’ve decided to persevere with this project and, no matter how many times I have to rewrite it, I will get this book to a place where I’m happy with it.
I’m going to do monthly update posts on how my writing project is going. Mainly because that will encourage me to actually do it.
Because we’re already half-way through the month I don’t have too high expectations for this month. I’m going to set a goal of 10,000 new words before February. Lets see how I do!
Thanks for reading,
