And at the moment, brain drained and feeling askew by the idea of editing, rewriting and reworking. The process must go on… and I ask myself, why? Because I want to give the world something it doesn’t know it needs! (to paraphrase the NanoWrimo tagline)
My blog writing plans evaporated during the month since the energy it took me to write 1,667 words each day made it impossible to focus on any more words, which became immovable, monolithic structures that blocked my thoughts.
Writing flows, then stalls then falls apart, and I wipe it off the floor and continue, because I sold four more books of my first NanoWrimo novel – Growing Iris – this week. And the feeling of having people read my book – and relate, laugh, understand my characters is… motivating.
That’s why I finished another month of pure writing and a first draft of a sequel to Growing Iris.
