We Got This

One Step Closer…

 

The other day I finished editing the fourth draft of Diary of a Lover. I just have to print out the new fifth draft, give it to my sister Kristen and then she can edit that one for me. So while she edits that, my mom will be editing Take Over and I will be editing Hunter. I have three young adult novels that need serious editing so they’re finally going to be on their way. I’m hoping to make an assembly line out of them between myself, my sister, and my mom.

I know I was in the middle of writing The Blank Page, but I have decided to put that on hold for now. I’m not exactly in the mood to write it as I came up with a couple of new novel ideas. I came up with two new ideas and I’m not sure which one I want to start, but I’m going to write one on and off. I want to edit this month.

Since it is June, I shouldn’t start any new projects now. July is the second and last session of Camp NaNoWriMo. However, I think I might cheat this session again and write a combination of things. So, for June, I will edit Hunter and start…whatever new novel I thought of (neither one of them have a title). Then for July I can continue and finish whatever novel I’m starting this month. Does that make sense?

I’m going away for a week in July and I’m going to be babysitting a lot during that month so it’s going to be difficult for me to start a new project. I think I should be able to write 50,000 words during the month if I write a little extra every day. That’s why I think I’m just going to continue whatever I start this month. I won’t have wi-fi when I go away (I don’t think so, anyway…we’re going to a new place), so I will not be bringing my laptop. I’ll have to rely on writing in a notebook. I’m going to use that time to edit Hunter…if I don’t finish editing it by the time we go away.

I have a plan, so we’ll see what happens. Hopefully I can stick with it. πŸ™‚

  1. Yay for plans! I don’t think we’ll have wi-fi when we go away; I believe we traded having the Internet for having enough bedrooms for everyone, haha! My plan is to just write. See what happens. Keep putting words on pages. Let’s see how I do with that. Let me know when “Diary of a Lover” is printed out!

  2. I’m going to attempt my second novel, but lower the count to 20,000 cause of being away as well. I still don’t know how you keep track of everything. πŸ™‚ Best of luck to you. πŸ™‚

    • Trust me, it isn’t easy…but I have a lot of a notes and such that are unorganized, lol.

      I wish you the best of luck for Camp!
