Whenever I’ve gone back to writing my novel, I tend to go back a few pages and add in little bits of the story I may have forgot the first time.
I’d go back and add little nuances – whether it be some extra detail in the room, or simply an extra line a character says – I have always gone back and done so.
However, the past three times I’ve sat down to write, I haven’t gone back to add things in.
What gives? It’s been almost a year, and I’ve gone back and added little things here and there before I actually get into the “thick” of writing. Why has it suddenly stopped?
I’d like to think it’s because I’m so close towards my goal.
Perhaps it’s because I’ve “matured” as a writer?
Maybe I’m subconsciously satisfied with what I wrote those previous times that I don’t feel a need to go back?
Or maybe I’m just looking too far into it.
Anyway, I’ll try to keep my dignity and keep on writing.
I’m really getting antsy to show people what I have. I just need to hold out a little bit longer. I have vacation time coming up soon and I hope to be done by then. We’ll see where that takes me.
Yes, I’m so close to the finish line!
