Editing Enough Said

notafraidfirstdrafts(I think I got this from the NaNo site?)

I keep telling myself this. I was surprised today when I began editing my novella that it had been a whole year since I had touched chapters six and beyond. Wow.

I guess I was afraid! LOL. I did spend a few days on the first five chapters throughout the year. Hopefully, I did not over edit but I read through them and I like what I have. I don’t know if others will but as long as I do right now that is what counts. At least that is what I tell myself. 🙂

Once again, I waited until the last-minute to finish editing before I tackle the next part of the series, novella #2. It might actually be a longer book. We will see how much extra I end up with this next month. Those filler words tend to sneak their way into the book before the end of the month deadline. 🙂

I have a good feeling that I will get this accomplished this time.

Even though, I may not pick the pen up much over the year I am constantly thinking of the plot to the book. I do jot down notes so not all is lost on the writing. When I finished the first book I knew something was missing and it was not coming to me over the last few years. I knew when I felt the words rolling out on the screen today the missing part has been found. 🙂

I did start writing the second book a year ago and why I feel better about it is beyond me. I have always been a bit backwards though. LOL.

I am going to try my best to stay busy the next few days. Social media will not interfere I tell myself, over and over. 🙂

Happy writing! I am off to make spaghetti! 🙂
