The light at the end of the tunnel
It’s been forever. Or months anyway. My last post was right as Nanowrimo was about to begin. I had big plans. Finish editing TAO, then write on Remnants. Thing didn’t go completely according to plan. But that’s ok.
Because I finished my third draft of TAO!
It just took a lot more words that I had anticipated, so there wasn’t any time to get started on Remnants. There are a few more things I want to do to the draft before I hand it over to Catrine again in a week. Hopefully at last some of them will get done.
It took me long time to get to this point, a lot longer than I had planned. I’ve come to realise, things seldom go according to plan when it comes to writing. Editing even more so. I still need to plan though. Figure out what I want to do this coming year, and then do my best to get as much of it done as possible.
I’m still working on the plan, version 3.0 at this point I suppose. I’m trying to decide if I want to be realistic, or go all in. Once I figure it out, I’ll let you know.
Congrats on finishing the draft! Looking forward to reading it.
I’m definitely feeling the pressure at the moment. I spent last Sunday plotting and redoing my timeline, but at the moment I only have one chapter ready, and that one is nearly the same as the version you’ve already read. And perhaps one small chapter in the middle. Late, me? Noooo… (But I’m very close to figuring out the rest of my plot, at least)
