So after talking it over on the NB forums, I’ve decided to let The Book sit for a while. I had gotten to the point where I really couldn’t stand to look at it anymore and I had no drive to do anything with it. I’m not sure exactly when I’ll finish editing it; I don’t want to put a time frame on my mentality. Instead I’m going to go back to The-First-Attempt-Book and start over. Completely. I had over 80,000 words in the draft I had been working on, but it just wasn’t very good. It’s not really the plot I’m worried about, or making it worthy of being a published novel. It’s all about the characters I created and abandoned. I want to finish their story. I need to finish their story. It concerns me when they pop in my head. When I see someone who looks just how I pictured them, or hear something that reminds me of their story. So for now, that’s what I’m going to be doing. As for The Book — I’m not worried. It’ll get done when it gets done.
