It’s almost November. Roughly a week left, actually, until NaNoWriMo starts.
So, of course, what did I do the day before yesterday? Switched projects. Originally, I was going to write a sequel—probably not the brightest idea since the first book isn’t really finished—but I thought, hey! I already have the setting and characters all figured out; so all I have to do is figure out the plot!
Then I found the plot holes in my first book and realized that it needed a lot of work. Long story short, I’m writing a new “book one” and the original book one is now the second one, and the sequel I was supposed to be writing is now the third book.
Hmm. I thought most writers had to start later and cut off several chapters in the beginning—at least, according to a few episodes of Writing Excuses—not earlier… Oops.
Oh well. The past three days I’ve been trying to plan it out a little, and starting earlier in the storyline I think is really going to fix a lot. I’ve already fixed two plot holes in the storyline that I didn’t even know existed. Funny how that works, eh?
Anyway. Now I’m rambling. Again. But, I tend to do that when I’m excited, and I’m really, really excited for NaNoWriMo this year. I actually got several family members to join me, which will make it all the better.
