I just removed 1,958 words from the new novel.
I had originally planned to write a novel in three parts. But I can tell it wasn’t going to work. It would have grown into this big monster of a disaster. Instead, I am just sticking with a suspense/thriller novel.
Although I blew away a lot of work, I feel this is the best move on my part. The writing is still going well, so at least there is that.
Hey, it’s all part of the process of this craft we call, “Writing.”
