I might not have been getting words down on the page lately, but these last few days I’ve been thinking about it as I try to decide how I’m going to get back into it.
I really want to complete Chasing Ascension, and I think I’m ready to get back into it – but do I just keep writing, or go back and fix up the bits that I’ve already done?
Typically, I wouldn’t go back. That’s what a second draft is for. This time around though I am thinking it’s the only way – part of the reason I didn’t carry it on was because it was missing something and I know what that is now. I feel like I want to bring that to the whole story, not just everything after 17,000 words.
Okay, yes, the numb brain/exhaustion/sickness of early pregnancy certainly wasn’t helping matters, but that wasn’t the only thing getting in my way. Things in that area seem to be clearing up a little and it’s lovely to be able to think straight and WANT to do stuff again, even if I’m not quite up to speed yet.
I think over the next couple of days I’m going to read through what I have, then start making changes where I see fit.
