I can’t believe I finished the rough draft of my Riser/Atlas mash-up book! I’m really excited, but also know I have a ton of editing to do. Even though I had outlined this novel within an inch of its life, I inevitably made a few unexpected turns along the way, which forced me to re-outline the outline, and create a few holes I need to patch up now.
I’m going to wait to do any hard core editing until December though. I decided that this year I’m going to tackle NaNoWriMo full force! I’m writing the sequel to Dream Diaries and I’m going to take the entire month of October to outline the crap out of it! That way, come November, I can sit down and crank through. I feel like it’s good luck since the only NaNoWriMo I ever won was with the first Dream Diaries.
I’m in a good head space lately, which is a nice change. I’m usually one of those ‘self-punisher’ or ‘self-guilter’ types. Like if I don’t meet a deadline (self-imposed deadline, mind you!) I feel like a total failure. But now that I finished my mash-up ahead of schedule, I’m feeling really good. (I know, it probably won’t last, but I’m going to enjoy it while I can!)
So, NaNoWriMo, I’m ready for you! Can’t wait to start my page, buy some swag and knock out another novel in November! The juices are flowing and I’m taking full advantage!
Now to go outline lol!
