I’ve come to realize why I’ve been struggling with the story I was working on. I started it over ten years ago and have been trying to revive it, but the sad truth is, I’m a completely different person than I was then. So good news and bad news. Bad news, it’s going to take me a little more time to finish my first book. Good news, I just started a new story and I’ve finally got my flow back. Almost 2000 words in just a couple hours before I had to stop. I really want to keep going but I know to quit when I start to get punchy.
Well friends, it’s all over but the drinking. I have to confess, I failed miserably. I blame it on a lack of planning. About a week in I realized there were some serious holes in my plot. Once I finally figured them out, I was already well behind the curve. After a few other problems, I was forced to admit I wasn’t going to finish on time. But don’t worry, I learned some valuable lessons. The most important of these was simply the habit of writing every day. Even if I work slowly, if I work every day I will finish in time.
Sorry I haven’t posted lately. I’ve been attempting nanowrimo this year. The bad news that unless a miracle happens, I won’t be finishing my 50,000 words. By the end of the month. The good news is I’ve made great strides toward finishing my first novel.
Just added a little treat to my website www.justinmkelly.info click on writing samples.
Well, I think I finally managed to get this thing working with my site. Let me know what you think.
Welcome to my blog. In the future I will be using this space to let you know what’s going on in my quest to be a published novelist.
