My third writing goal this year is to write a draft of a novel. I have been meaning to do this for the last five years but now I am committed to doing it.
I still haven’t planned what my novel is going to be about. I can’t seem to make up my mind about what genre I want to write, even though I have a lot of ideas I think can be made into a full-length story.
This time last year I tried to write a novel but my confidence got in the way of getting the story finished. I have been flipping back and forth over whether I should carry on with this draft, change how the book is written somehow or scrap the book completely. It’s hard decision to make, especially when I have invested time into it already. I think it would be best to leave this idea completely and try to write something new and fresh but if I did do so I would feel that I would be admitting defeat.
Whatever I decide to do with the book that I started, I am determined that by the end of December 2020 I will have a draft of my book ready to be edited. This does mean I need to sit down soon and start planning the book and how to approach the writing.
I will be updating you on my progress and hopefully will have some exciting news to tell you later in the year when it is finished.
