Putting My Writing First
Usually on November 1st, I'd be embarking upon NaNoWriMo, the month long word marathon which, if you haven't heard about, and frankly I'd be very surprised if you haven't, you can catch up with here.
I'm not taking part, but this doesn't mean I won't be grafting, instead it means I'll be 'putting my writing first' during November, and knuckling down to re-drafting the novel I began twelve months ago today.
The story is written. However, the characters need more flesh on their bones so to speak, they're a bit flaky, and the back story is lacking in places. One character has to go. There will be lots of changes, and this will be my project for the month. I want to add 20,000 words. Tighten everything, and make sure it has clarity.
I'm apprehensive, but also excited, its like a new project all over again. I'll let you know how I get on throughout the month.
This does mean the blog will be different. Thats as much as I know.
Just before I knuckle down to some writing, check out this competition but hurry! Its closing soon, and with FREE entry and prizes its surely worth a go?
