Jonesing to Write...

I just looked over the 5,000 something words I wrote for NaNoWriMo, which roughly translates anywhere between 10-12 pages of text. They’re rough around the edges, need some definite filling out, but are workable – mostly. I reviewed them mostly because I was thinking back and wondering if I might need to ditch them, and start over. Their basic premise is what I want to write, though.

The review process is part of my preparing to write more within this story. I needed to break for the various holidays so I could focus on family and friends. I also wanted to give myself a bit more time for the story to brew. I already know, in my head, some of the details that I want to fill out, and somewhat about how I want to proceed.

I’m being nagged really – not by people around me, but by the story. It’s saying that it has waited long enough and it’s time to be written. I agree. There are no more excuses to be had, really. I’m thinking of showing more of what I wrote to a person or two, a few select people, but I shouldn’t let myself get distracted by that. If I do, I know I’ll constantly worry about their opinion and then I’ll get bogged down with details. What I /really/ should do is just sit and write. So, that’s the plan. Rereading what I started has sparked that desire to do that again.

I’ll post about my progress on my sister LJ christierose.

Nanoedmo - National Novel Editing Month. It's either March or April (pretty sure it's March). I don't do it because they require it to be a buddy system - you clock another 50 hours during the month to edit or add to the novel you started in November, and the other person certifies that you spent that time. That's all :)
