I just hacked off about 6000 words of my NA novel.
I kinda want to jump off a cliff. I was more than 1/4 done. I was over 25,000 words.
And now, I’m under 20,000.
I want to cry.
But I did what I needed to do to fix a major plot problem. I got back on track. I’m headed in the right direction.
Am I the first person who has to LOWER their words written for the day at Camp NaNoWriMo? 🙁
I doubt it. Well, I hope at least.
We’ve all been there. I personally keep the snippets and see if I can do something with them later, like a side-story/chapter.
I kept it in hopes I’ll find a spot for part of it at least at some point. But I doubt I ever will. It’s funny because one of the scenes I cut is actually pretty similar to a scene I cut out of my YA novel. Maybe one day it will actually work in a book I write!
Hopefully you get to include it somewhere.
It’s remarkable to pay a visit this site and reading the
views of all colleagues on the topic of this article, while I am also keen of getting experience.
