The progress of my novel so far is… well, better than when I began blogging a few months ago.
Apparently my novel has a mind of it’s own, or perhaps it’s just my mind lacking proper skill and determination.
The toughest part for me has been the editing. Oh, the editing… I’ve been editing the thing for over a year. A year! I know, I know. Writing takes time. But a year is just so long if you think about it.
When I say editing, I’m mostly referring to re-writing and taking out chunks altogether that I’ve decided I no longer want to keep as part of the story. Editing little bits, grammar, etc. is the least of my worries right now, for finishing the actual story is the most important part — right?
I didn’t realize how hard this all would be. I had the story idea and a mountain of motivation sitting in my heart/brain when I began this novel. Slowly but surely, it’s coming along…
I guess I need some more patience. 🙂
