Well, that's NaNo.
But I'm becoming not a little illusioned with my NaNo novel. It's not like last year. Last year, the story just came together. Beginner's luck, I guess. Or maybe it was because it was intentionally humorous, and the humor of my speed-writing only made it better. I'm not sure. All I know is that when I looked at it this year - I enjoyed it.
But now my NaNo novel is progressing with words I hate, with backstory that pops in and out on every other page - and changes every time. It's frustrating, but I'm going to finish it. I am. Because I'm committed, and that's how I roll.
Funny thing is, I probably would have given up on it already if it weren't for the query I'm supposed to be writing. This is how much I don't want to write my query:
- NaNo novel: Like a Sunrise (I hate that title)
- the Shiny New Idea
- the Shiny Old Idea (tentatively the Next Big Thing on my to-write list)
- the Query
Any query-motivation is appreciated.
