Buy Me A Coffee

19/05 – 16/06

Hi everyone, how are you? I’ve had an interesting past couple of weeks! I have settled well into my new job and I am really enjoying it so far! It’s challenging, and everyday brings something new. There’s never two days the same.

More frustratingly though, I’ve had to start all over again with my novel. Right back to the first words. I have had a concept change that I believe will make the story a lot better, but I am struggling to find the motivation now the word count is back down to 0. I’d appreciate any advice if you have some. How do I get motivated again now that I feel like I’m back to step one. And how do I combine the two drafts so that the first draft wasn’t all for nothing.

In Case You Missed It…

Hi everyone. Sorry about this, I typed this whole section up and listed some awesome posts. And then wordpress froze… and It went right back to the point before I’d typed out the rest of my post. I’m not going to have time to find all the posts again now and type them up. So I am going to have to skip this section this month now which is really frustrating. Sorry everyone!

Once again sorry for the tech problems with this post! Thanks for reading though, and stay tuned as my mid-year book freak out tag is posting at 2pm today!

  1. Good luck with the writing! It must be hard to start fresh but at the same time sounds like you’re pretty excited about your new concept, so… maybe instead of thinking in terms of back to step one, maybe instead look at it as- you already have the other word count, and maybe you can still use some of the old material (or may be able to down the road, even if it doesn’t seem like it now)? I had the same problem at one point- I had 17k words roughly and ended up scrapping some of it, but I kept the words both for motivation and because… you never know?

    Anyway glad to hear about the new job working out- have a super week!

    1. Thanks for your advice, that’s a good way of looking at it. I guess it wasn’t all for nothing as it helped me to develop my character and her world as that’s going to stay the same. It’s just the plot that’s changing.
