Recently, I took a day and devoted it to my writing.
Every since I did NaNoWriMo a few years ago (or more - eek!), I've had some holes in my novel. You see, for NaNoWriMo, I worked on part two of my novel.....after having not quite finished part one. This may not have been the best of strategies but it got me a lot of good written material, so I'm not complaining.
I've obviously worked on the novel since then. But I still had holes. Over the past year, I've worked on filling those gaps and, as of this week, they're done. Yay!!
Now comes the hard part: the conclusion.
Ironically, for someone so OCD and organized as myself, I rarely follow an outline when writing. I usually begin with one but the characters have a say in the story....and they take me on tangents I cannot anticipate. It's great when it happens.....not so great when I forget the outline. With the best of intentions, I'm working on an outline for the conclusion.
I have to get this done. I have the name of an agent who will look at it. I have to finish. I have to!
