Finally editing

Enough with short stories! I’m finally getting some momentum on editing my longer works and moving toward them being ready to submit somewhere. My optimistic goal is to have both my novel and novella ready to send places before winter is over.

Very optimistic, I know…

Reaching milestones quicker

I have reached 20k words on my current novel and I’ve been writing it for about three months now. My first novel it took my nearly nine months to reach that point–which I know is a ridiculously slow pace that I should not be that proud of beating, bu–I have beat it! If I can keep this current (still slow) pace, I can hope to have a first draft within a year from starting it. A novel per year… it’s doable!

Of course, at some point I’ll have to spend time editing…

Blegh.

The end is near!

I finally know how my novel ends. Yes, this sounds crazy considering that I’m 4ok + words in, but it’s just how I work. I have a general idea of how things will go, but never any details until I get there. Well, I’m close enough now that I can see clearly what happens, and am racing toward it with excitement!

The light… go toward the light…

I’m almost home…
