It’s almost December, you guys. This thought doesn’t freak me out as much as I thought it would, so I’m making a bit of a plan regarding my NaNoWriMo.
This time, I’m going to spend the next few months working on it. Every year prior to this one, I’ve written it and then left it alone. I have one “novel” that’s four years old and still utter Scheisse.
Only, this one… and the one from 2014… I like them. I like them a great deal and not just because I bled words onto a document for a couple of weeks. For once, I’m going to push myself to flesh out the novel, to add word count and establish a timeline, work out two of the characters who so far don’t have so much of a purpose.
Right now, the best way I could talk about it is describing it as a wardrobe with a few dozen shirt-hangers, and like two pieces of apparel hanging inside. A skeleton-closet, if you will.
I also want to work more on the other one, from last year, because a while ago I went nuts and planned out several more novels, taking it to a series, so… yeah. I’ve decided to be one of those people who gets stuff done. I’d make a New Years’ resolution, but I don’t believe in those. As “luck” would have it, I’m most likely going to be unemployed most/all of December, so plenty of time for writing and editing and shaping things up.
So. Any tips for essentially rewriting two novels at the same time?
