Now that NaNoWriMo is over. Validated my 50K on the 20th of last month and ended the month with 55K, I have a mess to clean up.
I’ve been struggling with this story. It hasn’t unfolded for me like the first book did. I’ve kept changing my mind on things, written short side stories to try to generate idea, etc. The final product when I’ve cleaned most of the excess up: not a whole lot left.
And a giant mess.
I guess my concern is that this story wasn’t meant to be written or at least not as its own book. I love the dynamic that my two main character’s have developed into and I want to run with that, but this story is, well, not a whole lot. There are parts that I adore and too many that I wondered what I was thinking at the time (perhaps too caffeinated).
I’ll put the effort into editing it and see if I can’t salvage something and rework the book that way. I just feel disappointed after all of the mental planning that had gone into it.
