Takes guts to go back and read what you’ve written

standard May 5, 2009 2 responses

Ever since February when I started seriously working on my novel again I’ve been forging ahead, desperate to get to the end. My only goal was to power through the first draft, come what may, and just. get. it. done.

I think I was terrified that if I stopped to reread what I’d done I’d either get paralyzed again and stop, or I’d realize that I was writing drivel and stop. So I powered through. I wrote through scenes that I knew were terrible. I wrote on even when I knew I wasn’t getting the character’s details just right. It didn’t matter. None of it mattered as long as I got to the end.

I’m 1/3rd of the way through and I stopped to go back to the beginning.

I’m not going to rework everything, I’m not going to make significant edits. I’m just going to change the point of view of the major character and see how the story is building. I’m doing what I didn’t think I had the guts to do before I went to to hang out with a group of writers for a day.

So far I’ve learned that I wasn’t writing drivel. Now let’s see if I have the guts to keep going.

  • Bravo! Good for you! And yes, it takes courage to go back and look through what you’ve written and how cool that you’re pleased with it! That makes it a little easier to forge ahead.

    I’m biting the bullet and doing the same thing with my National Novel Writing Month project. I’ve been thinking about the story and it just needs to be told. So, I’m going to continue working on it (it’s at a little over 50,000 words now) and see where it takes me.

    Thank you for inspiring me!

  • “I wasn’t writing drivel.” How cool is that?
