I was delighted to get a comment today and it was reassuring to see that I’m not the only one who will abandon Camp NaNoWriMo this month because of other “things”!
We don’t always get the opportunity to write what we think we should be writing! I know that we are the writers but there sometimes seems to be someone else in control of the what!
I find I cannot be all things to all characters until I’m published and fully able to leave those characters behind for good and the ones from this novel seem to be sticking around for the long haul.
However, there’s a lot of chatter going on! I added 1,000 words yesterday to this manuscript and today I managed to spend a couple of hours and added another 1,500 words to it! All this on a novel I thought was complete but for proofreads. And it’s not like my writer brain said it needs more… the characters are still alive and well and needing different parts added.
So, like my reader who commented, I too, will likely end up putting my Camp NaNo on hold until November and I will resort to finishing this glorious work in the time it takes.
I guess I can chalk up another blog post for today… YAY me!
Tomorrow I am going to talk a little about this novel of mine. I really need to title it so I can reference it in my posts easier. With all the works in progress at the moment I feel like I’m confusing you!
Perhaps I’ll get a couple of suggestions from you?
