yeah so i’ve made it to the next stage in my editing process for last year’s novel; first i wrote it all down haphazardly for the 50k word count, then i read it and messed around with it and changed some things and also mostly ignored it for a while, then i made a cut and paste draft that didn’t have as much unusable junk in it but was full of holes. now i am working in this cut and paste file, filling in the holes. im not sure where i want to be with it by November but my plan is to spend nanowrimo focusing on it and celebrating it and getting it close to a wrapped-up state so i can promote and share it then do another one next year. it’s fun!
it’s all just about creating an illusion of coherence from what was once a pile of garbage.
