Well first let me thank those of you who gave me questions for my love interest in this story on the post …Trouble Connecting to a Lover last week. They helped A LOT!
I worked so hard over the weekend on my Novella. Then I sat down and re-read a couple of chapters that I had written. When I was done… this is what the conversation was like in my head.
Yes… all in one millisecond.
Apparently there was a part of me that knew it was crap and made me go back to re-read it.
Was I rushing my characters? Maybe. Was my mind just too scattered? OBVIOUSLY. Am I feeling pressured to finish this book? Maybe. It isn’t like I have a deadline set by an editor or Agent to make.
So why am I feeling pressured to finish his book? Maybe there is a part of me that wants to get back to The Five Angels? I can’t deny that is the first story that runs through my mind. I could always set this aside and write some for TFA, then come back to it. I don’t think the story is going to leave my brain anytime soon. ( BTW, I can’t make my mind up on what to call it and it is driving me crazy! )
Ok…. I’m having a really bad case of the …
Like I was TRYING to say, I knew what I had to do.
POOF! There went 3 Chapters of the story. As it turned out those 3 chapters, they were about 10,000 words.
OUCH! That hurt the word count for the month.
Trust me when I say it was really for the best though. Maybe now that I have the crappy writing out of the way, everything else will be golden right?
I did go on and jump forward in the story. Those chapters ended up being pretty decent. We will see how much they are affected when I go back and re-write the chopped chapters.
Onward and upward right?
