Because I got my trunk book done early, I’m ready to write something new. Well, it’s sort of new. Another trunk book, but this one I’m just pretty much throwing out. I kept the town the story is set in. I kept the main characters. But I’m changing the protagonist’s backstory and many details of the plot.
I’m not even going to bother trolling for salvagable pages. Just the thought of doing that made me tired and depressed. Instead, I’m just going to open my computer on November 1 and write 8 pages. I might make an outline tomorrow…or not. I do have the first scene finished, but it’s only 7 pages and I’m not going to count it in the 50,000.
I can’t believe I’m actually doing this again, but really, it’s the perfect time. Then I’ll have the winter to revise.
