Since picking up writing again, I revisited a romance novel I’ve been working on and threw myself into it. I’m a writer who can get work done fast when I need to. One day I wrote 10,000 words. That’s a huge achievement for me.
There is only one way to become a better writer and that’s butt in chair typing away. Some nights I couldn’t sleep. I’d get up at 1 AM and type, edit, add chapters, delete chapters, drink more coffee, write down ideas. My fiancé thought I was crazy at times.
It’s a novel I’m proud of and I hope to make something of it. I have a lot of work to do and have hired an editor to help me with the process. This is a big commitment and pricey but I have to go the distance. I’m really trying to make my dream come to life and I’m doing it because I want to.
Last week, I sent that manuscript to the editor so I won’t hear anything for a few weeks. I’m anxious and excited to see what she recommends.
Since then, I’m already starting another novel and trying to aim for 1000 words a day. I also want to try plotting. I’m usually a person who goes by the seat of my pants but would like to try it for once. I plan to do a blog post about that soon.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
