I’m hard at work with my revisions to my NaNoWriMo novel, Lillie Among Thorns. After I finished my rough draft, I printed it all out (whew, lots of paper!) and went through with my best friend, the red pen.
After I finished, I definitely had something missing. It took a few weeks of doing other things—general research, reading (a lot of reading), journaling—before I realized what it was that was missing.
So, I was able to dive back in, rewrite, re-research and here I am! I’m plugging away – I’m not even halfway though and have set a tight personal deadline, but I’m hopeful.
On a side note, thank you to Julie Jarnagin for her post, “101 Blog Post Ideas for Writer” – It came at a perfect time for me as I plan out future posts. Normally, I write a bundle of blogs at one time and then set them to publish on my normal Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This helps with some fresh ideas coming soon!
