This is the physical manifestation…

I finished the second draft and I’m working on the third

This is what it looks like. I love seeing the amount of pages, it’s a physical manifestation of my hard work.

I think now about all the words that go into each draft…the R words…revise, re-visit, re-imagine, refine.

More to come.

I finished my first draft

March 10, 2021

I have not blogged in a long time. That changes now. I wrote a book, a novel. While every writer wants to be published, I’m no exception. But I am enjoying this moment of completion. I am halfway through the second draft.

The more I work on my story, the better I know my characters. I can actually see them as I write. It is as if I have entered thier lives, thier world.

I’m writing a novel

March 15, 2018

I’m writing a novel, and almost finished with the first draft! What has worked for me is working on scenes. Thus, I am not necessarily writing it sequentially. Instead I’m working on important scenes, and then deciding where they fit in the narrative.
