Making Progress

I’ve been avoiding writing for awhile. I have really changed the events of Book One since switching primary POV characters. The thought of starting in on Draft–wait, let me count–32 was a bit overwhelming. Then I realized that I’ve already written all of this. I just need to do some rearranging and revising. I will have to write some new scenes, of course, but I don’t have to rewrite the entire thing. YAY!!

I spent two hours this evening snatching scenes from previous drafts and putting them into an outline. I’m feeling really good about this. I even made some headway into confusing motivational type things. And the most exciting part? My Parts One and Two, which I have been planning and hoping to combine, were formerly between 70,000 and 90,000 words EACH. My new pieced together draft is down to 112,000!! This gives me great hope that I might actually be able to write a decently lengthed novel! I tend to be long-winded.

Well, the coffee shop is closing, so I’d better head out! I hope to update again soon with some of the cool insights I’ve been having.

Happy Writing!
