So, two weeks after slashing 18,000 words (Aah!) from Followed, I have written 18,000 more. I have to say that it’s the best thing I could have done for the story. I am still not finished with adding to it, so it will be a much longer story that I had anticipated (Well over 60,000 words!). The junk is gone and in its wake is a fresh, adrenaline-laced plot (I hope).
I had become a little grumpy with November around the corner, wondering if I could take part in NaNoWriMo with Followed needing so much attention, but then my fellow blogger, Vikki, reminded me that I can still edit while participating in NaNo. 🙂 So, I will be taking part!
It is only Oct. 11 and I have a feeling that, at this rate, the writings will be completed well before November and I will be down to just editing. (Just editing? Is there such a thing?) Hmmm.
November may just be a good time to set this novel down and view it with fresh eyes come December, but knowing me, I may still want to pick at it during November.
I am curious – are any of you taking part in NaNoWriMo? Do you have an idea of what novel you are going to write? Do tell. 🙂
