So I can finally show off this fantastic achievement!
It’s so relieving, you have no idea…. unless you’ve done it before, in which case you have a very clear idea.
As usual, I don’t have a great opinion of my first draft, not to mention that a lot of passages aren’t exactly connected to each other (this happened mostly at the end, when I had already finished the book and I had to write 3.000 words – see previous post).
I didn’t write an extra scene or anything, if that’s what you think. I just added what I knew I had to add. Like descriptions (I am rubbish at those) and a bit of background story for some of the characters (which is needed to understand what the heck happens).
Now I will basically finish with the last complementary scene and then I will just put the novel in a tidy folder and leave it there.
From December, it will be editing time! And I will keep good track of everything and I will be a good girl and I will NOT procrastinate, despite Christmas.
Well, let’s talk about that…
All right folks!
And! Talking about Christmas. I think the best present you might get for everybody you know (and I say everybody) is a nice little small booklet (bigger on the inside) full with colourful artwork and lovely poems. Yes, I am talking about my new book, the one you can find on Amazon if you just click on this: ‘I walked across a bridge…’.
So go go go! Click and get it before it’s too late and Christmas passes and goes!
