So, I’ve decided to put the writing of [C] on a halt for now. I’ve been having a hard time writing on this novel, and my daily word counts are nothing to write home about.
I’ve spent most of my time editing my WIP’s, but I’ve also started writing a fourth novel [C]. I was actually plotting a campfire story [E] (I still don’t know whether it’s going to be a novel or a novella at this point), but I got stuck.
Since I finished the first draft of my third WIP [BOR] a couple of weeks ago, I haven’t really written since. I need some time away from the sprawling project; not just to come back later with fresh eyes, but also because I don’t know if I like the road eventually taken.
I’ve been preoccupied with feverishly editing my second NaNoWriMo novel [OSAA] for a couple of months now, and after spending weeks on draft 1.5, I’ve officially started on draft 2. After finishing up my last couple of comments I hope to send this novel to my beta readers. It’ll probably take me another couple of weeks though. I might not finalize it until 2017.
It’s hard to admit but even though I’ve been steadily writing for five days a week (not always getting to my 500 words a day goal), this novel [BOR] is getting away from me.
I finished the first draft of my NaNoWriMo 2015 novel [OSAA] last Saturday (the 12th)! I also immediately had it printed and bound.
I already wrote a post about me winning NaNoWriMo [OSAA], so I won’t get into that. I am still working on the book though, and I’m nearing the end. I’m still in love with the story, and that’s a good thing, because I still find myself having to force myself to write some days.
