20 Days of Blog posts: Day 20

A while ago I had a baby idea for this YA fantasy story, but at the time I couldn’t think of all the parts that would have gone together. But today I had a someone break through and have thought up a bunch of things to go with it 🙂 So far it’s mostly the beginning, somewhat of a middle and ending. I’m going to have to divide it into parts to make the plot more manageable.

I managed to edit 31 pages of my novella The Things We Do. I have another 10 pages to go, but I’m just too tired. I had already given this story to some people to read a few months ago. They said that they liked it and wanted to know what happened after the book finished. I’m not sure if I want to write a sequel, I don’t have much of an idea of what the next journey will be.

But as I was going over it again, I saw a lot of mistakes. I mean quite a lot. It makes me wonder what my friends thought of my writing. I know one person only managed the first few chapters because they started it stoned and then forgot about it 😦 Thanks for that.

I did nothing but edit Save One for 11 hours today. I started at 8am and finished at 9pm. It has been one of the most productive days in a long while. All up I only did about 30-40 pages. I finished the third draft 🙂

There were times when I was getting distracted by the internet, but I was motivated by the thought of disappointment. It’s a massive motivation, don’t knock it until you’ve imagined yourselves failing. I’m serious.

I had to re-do my book cover for the print copy of Feet or Fins because it was rejected due to the fact that some of the text was too close to the edge. And I only edited maybe a chapter and a half of Save One 😦

I don’t know exactly why I’m slumping. I have all the time in the world, I know what needs to be done and I can’t seem to do it 😦
