I know many of us feel that way at times. I’m still working on my mystery book that I finished writing a year ago. I’m doing corrections and rewriting in places. Generally, the result is adding more in the way of word count for me and not taking away word count. I think I talk too much in general and this carries over into my writing. So I’m trying to be careful about going through and removing redundant material and “garbage” words. However, I’m not removing all of them if it sounds better to leave them in. I’m hoping it doesn’t take me another year to get this book finished. There are times I have to remind myself not to get frustrated. Meanwhile, the next book in this series is sitting in my WIP folder, as I’ve already written the majority of it during the NaNo in November.
As some of you know, I’m trying to sell stuff, pack, and get the house ready to sell, etc at the same time. This task is really cutting into my writing time, as well as looking for a place to move from here, so I’ve been lax about posting as often as I should. Eventually, I’ll get back on a regular schedule again.
Happy writing everyone and lots of success in 2014
