Tao of Writing
Two? I hear you exclaim! Yes, two - three actually if you count my 'finished' manuscript which is still waiting in the wings for one last big re-write before I get it published. So yeah, what with meditation workshops, websites, a day job, a monthly column, my musical pursuits, a body that demands exercise, and a life that I have to squeeze in somewhere the novel writing has been getting the short shrift.
But never fear - let's get on with it. I have already completed about a quarter of both the first drafts. The question is should I keep dabbling on both of them at once or should I push one through. Even though it hurts me to leave one of my babies neglected, I think I am going to have to choose the latter option. So to give myself a bit of encouragement I am joining NILTOY - Novel In Less Than One Year which should help. Through this I have also raised an interested eyebrow at The Snowflake novel planning model but I am not going to look at that today as it is a bit math-esque and I have spent the entire last two and a half days wading knee deep in CSS and HTML and I am over the left brain shit for now (or is that right brain? Eh, who cares!)
October is the plan with these Niltoy dudes, so great! Let’s go! My 33rd birthday is in October - what a nice present to give myself - a second finished (first draft of a) fiction manuscript.
