NaNoWriMo - Day 21

And then I tried to revise.

I don't normally have any issues when I sit down to revise my manuscripts. I know where I need to beef things up. I can see where I need to change the word choice around to help with the flow. Normally I love this part of writing. It's very rewarding when I'm able to polish things up till they sparkle.

But not this time.

I think it's because things are so fresh in my mind with this NaNo story. I'm having a hard time with my edits. Where I could sit down and write for 2 hours and get lots written, now I can't sit for 15 minutes. I hasn't helped that my oldest daughter was sick today. I plan on taking tonight off and starting fresh tomorrow. I'd still like to get through as much as possible while I'm off this week.

Keep moving forward. :)

If you want to swap for fresh prospective, I'm game, but I'm warning you I think mine is ... interesting is the nicest word I can say. Like you I need to add lots to it. Let me know.

Hi Christine -- congrats on finishing your nanowrimo!
Thanks for visiting my blog the other day. In return, I'm tagging you with the 'Five Things You Don't Know About Me.' Have fun!

I always have to take about a month off between finishing the manuscript and revisions. I need the perspective and distance the time creates.
