I’m having a hard time killing off my casual acquaintances.
So I’ve begun editing two WIPs, neither of which are this year’s Nano project, but both of which are much further along toward an ending, or so it seems at this point anyway.
First WIP was intended to be a 100K contemporary romance novel, way back when I had the insane idea there was a possibility I could see a book of mine in actual physical print. Oh, the LOL. Right now the thing is at 61K and the plot is pile of hissing snakes. However! Now that I’m only writing for e-pub, the entire novel should be around 55K total, so I can pull half the snakes out and ~then a miracle occurs~ the rest of the snakes will then magically morph into a perfectly plotted wonderful romance novel.
But which snakes? Right. It’s not like they’re all so great. Not saying that. But they’re pretty freaking tangled up. Saying this.
Other WIP is finished and the right wordcount. It just kind of, well, sucks. I’ve had some feedback that the male protag isn’t developed enough as a character. Men have characters? What? Isn’t it enough that he has…
OK. ~eyeroll~ Gonna go program some feelings and an arc or whatever for this dude.
Wish me luck! 🙂
