I’m not doing NaNo, nor have I ever because I’m a pantster and an edit-as-I go type of gal, so it’s hard for me to finish an entire draft in a few weeks.
However, I am planning a complete rewrite of an old WIP, with the hopes I can have a first draft by the end of 2012. It’ll be about the 4th rewrite because I can’t get it quite right. The characters and the overall situation are there, but it’s like I can’t mesh it all together in a satisfying way. Maybe I should give it up entirely, but I can’t seem to quit you, book, because I have a feeling you’ll be good when all is said and done.
The MS has been in a metaphorical drawer since last spring and I’m excited for another go.
Yes, I’m very keen on deadlines. I work better under pressure. I do most everything better under pressure. My husband laughs because if there’s an emergency, I am completely calm and collected, but tell me I need to do one little thing in the next month and I’ll over-think it to the point of nausea.
Not that I enjoy being under pressure, but it’s just the way it goes, I guess.
Anyone doing NaNo? I’ll cheer you on from the sidelines!
