Writing The Masterpiece: Making A Good Start
So now I’m on the countdown to beginning novel three and I can’t wait to start. I’m writing the first draft of book three as part of the Nanowrimo challenge. That means I am committing to writing 50k words in November. It is quite an assignment but I managed it last year and have my certificate to prove it. I wrote the first draft of Blood Brothers – a book you can find out more about on the blog. Of course it went through several iterations afterwards but the first draft is the tricky bit for me.
At the moment I’m clearing the decks ready to begin. I have been working on the outline and the main characters. I just wish I had started planning a little earlier and had time for a little more research. But it the act of creation that gives me the buzz about writing and preparing never has the same kind of charge about it.
So now for the last few days I go back to the nittygritty of planning with the anticipation to keep my spirits.
