So, here is my current conundrum. (By the way, I love that word.)
I’m working on a novel now, which I’m super excited about. In a nutshell – college-age heroine with a learning disability falls for her tutor, who happens to be her boyfriend’s best friend and roommate. Hilarity ensues.
That’s it. Go by it on Amazon. 😉 Kidding.
Anyway, right now, I’m at almost 20K words. Not too shabby. But a novel is in the 50K to 60K + range. I have a ways to go. And I know what I need to write. It’s pretty much all mapped out. But instead of furthering what I have and continuing the story, I keep hemming and hawing over what I have already written.
It’s driving me nuts.
I need to just get my first draft down, then review everything. THAT’S WHAT DRAFTS ARE FOR, MEGAN. Jeez.
I wish there was a way to lock myself out of my previously written words to force myself to KEEP WRITING and not change stupid little words here and there. It’s a waste of my precious time, which is incredibly limited with a crazy-assed toddler running around and a three-month old baby.
Send me encouragement. 🙂
