Two weeks into NaNoWriMo 2021, and I’m still showing up. Although, I did miss Saturday. I am enjoying revision just as much as writing. It reveals my writing habits, my darlings, my go-to phrasing of action. Often, I’ll improve the language of a weak sentence, only to find I used the same construction a few sentences later. This forces me to come up with better ways to describe the action.
I’m getting a better sense of the scope of work that needs to be done. It’s quite a bit, and then a bit more.
