I’m curious to see how awful the editing process will be after I get the rough draft of my NaNoWriMo novel finished. Writing an entire draft in a single month sounded crazy to me at first, but (at least with a pre-plotted concept) it’s going surprisingly well for me. If the second draft rewrites are Hell on Earth, maybe this won’t become a regular practise for me, but if I find that the rewriting is no worse than usual, this is going to become my novel-writing method from now on!
Granted, all I do other than write and work right now is sleep and eat (not at the same time, thankfully (yet)) but one month out of the year is well worth it if I come out of that month with a novel to show for it.
I’m not sure what the point of all of this is, since normally my posts center around some kind of observation on the process itself, a method that has worked for me, or a brainstorming method. Troubleshooting, as it were, for the writing and editing processes. I’ll try to keep that up, but most of my mental energy right now is going straight to the pages of my book, so the blog may suffer in November.
So, I’m sorry for the brain-dead post, but that’s all I’ve got right now. I’m zapped!
