Half-way through Nanowrimo 2017!

18 Nov

Whew! You guys, I made it. WE made it.

To the half-way point, that is.


Okay, well we are a few days past half-way… but anyway –

My goal was to get through (editing) my manuscript as fast as I could so that I could then get going through it again to actually WRITE the scenes that need adding! And there are a lot of them, trust me. Aaand, right about day 15, I got to the end.

I promptly wrote my reaction and as many notes as I could (at the end of my 10 page document of read-through notes) to having read it from beginning to end. I’d done that at the beginning of this year of course, but having it printed out made such a difference for me. If you’re struggling with editing and getting the timeline set in your brain, I recommend printing the entire thing out and reading it that way.

So, now, I’ve got to get going on round two of nano for me – writing! I’m really torn between just going to the scenes that need written (I marked the spots with green post-it notes! ( i love these)  Or starting from the beginning and editing again but writing the scenes in this time as I go through. Any advice?

Are you doing Nanowrimo?
