I woke up this morning not feeling utterly destroyed, as I rightly should have seeing as my partner’s sister in law and I demolished three bottles of wine between us last night, so I’m counting today as a win.
Today is also the start of Nanowrimo, a competition that I adore and try to take part in most years. This year however, I’m not so sure.
Darkened Daughter is currently lurking around the 53,000 word mark. Now I could decided to partake in Nanowrimo and write another 50,000 words to go on top, giving me 100,000 to play around with later. Or I could ignore the event all together and just write the rest of Darkened Daughter or as is the current case, leave it sitting on my desk where it glares at me in neatly spaces lines demanding to be given attention.
I’m on the fence.
Nanowrimo is great for giving writers that push to get stuff down on paper, but can I really go into it knowing that most of the book is already written and I’m now writing chapters to fill out the world and the characters? I am in essence writing the second draft.
I suppose it doesn’t really matter.
I just need to make sure I’m actually getting new words now on paper…
