She Brings Me Water

An aeclectic look at the nearby world

Completion

For National Novel Writing Month, I completed my 50, 000 words  on November 29th, but the novel itself wasn’t finished until December 7th.  In January of 2010 I’ll start editing it.  Right now I’m following Stephen King’s advice from his book entitled On Writing by putting the book aside for at least 6 weeks and letting it rest, like bread dough.  Then I’ll read it and see if it’s really a novel or just 55,000 words in a row.  By the way, if you are thinking of becoming a writer, do read Stephen King’s book that I just mentioned.  You will simultaneously learn how hard it is to be a writer, and how easy it is as well.  That’s the scary part.
