Writing - In Progress: End of March
After spending some time re-reading my newest novel - I have made some major changes to it. This is the one where I wasn't liking my main female protagonist. I changed her background quite a bit and she now seems more like the secure woman I wanted her to be to begin with. I have also added a third main character. This one took me by surprise as she was not in the original draft at all. I am much appier with the way this story is going now, though.
I also decided for certain that I will not be doing a version of NaNoWriMo in April. I took a good look at my family's April calendar and oh my - there is no way I can fit in writing 50,000 words, as well. Just no way.
I am going to take on a writing project for April but it's 18,000 words and that is much more manageable. This is a story that I will be submitting by the end of the month.
And finally, I have submitted Safe Haven to a couple of new agents. I have a few more agents and publishers to send it off to, as well.
In addition to all of this - I have been writing more regualarly over the past couple of weeks. So, all in all, I am pleased with where I'm at writing-wise at this time. I have every intention of keeping up the output of words and continuing to submit the manuscripts.
How is the writing going for everyone else? I'd love to know!
