Whew! What a refreshing new view it is.
But enough about that. Let's talk writing. You remember my last post, Hello World, where I confessed to not writing for a year because of really stupid fears and insecurities? And how I promised I was writing Evade (SEEK Book 2) again?
|Search (SEEK Book 1)|
Well, wow! I wasn't lying. When I wrote that post a month ago I had just begun [my ninth attempt at] writing [it] and I had maybe six thousand words (not much). Well...I finished my rough draft a week ago at fifty-eight thousand words.
I kicked NaNoWriMo's ass!!!!!!
Fastest I've ever written and I'm not a slow writer (when I know what the hell I want to say!).
I'm just beginning the second week of my two-week break from the manuscript (If you don't do this, you should! I highly recommend everyone walk away from their book between each revision.), but I am so excited to get back to it. It's like my brain was writing all along and it's just busting with all of the things I wouldn't let it say.
So, next Sunday I'm going to begin the revision process -- YIKES, wish me luck, that first glimpse of slop can be terrifyingly intimidating -- and I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Coming up: I'm writing another The Writer's Maze post about my recent triumphant return to writing.
