Are our novels living beings? I think so, mine are. They’re alive in my mind all the time, fermenting away in the background of my mind. Being nurtured by things I see, places I go, people I meet.
The amount of time I’ve taken to write and prepare these posts for the AtoZchallenge I could have done a fair bit of editing. Yes I should have written all 26 posts about editing! It’s neverending for me! I know it’s two words but to me it’s one! Maybe it should be neverendingediting.. Sorry, but I think this might be my lazy post.. I really should be editing a novel or two..
I’ve got tons more in me to be written and want to get the first three finished before I get stuck into the next ones. Come back to them when I’ve forgotten about them, when they’ve been festering in a drawer for years? No thanks. I won’t forget about them so easily as people seem to think I can. They’ll fester if I do that. Instead I’d like them to have fermented with a bit of neverendingediting, become something complete that I can move on from.
What novels are you nurturing? Are you neverendingediting?
I agree, maybe my M should have been moaning.. tee hee! better get editing..
My AtoZchallenge posts are about writing, parts of my novels or some research I need to do for them. I’m not allowing myself to write about anything other than topics linked to the books, my books. The current titles that I’m writing about are ‘Bags’, ‘Holiday stories’ and ‘Dream Gardener’.
