Novels, On Writing

Milestone reached!

I have now finished my fifth redraft of my first novel!

Still not quite ready to send out yet. I need to shed about 5k words to be within the recommended YA novel word count limits and the new scenes need a polish but I’m glad to say that I’m very happy with how it’s turned out.

The new scenes provide a lot more interest than the old and they are definitely keepers.

In the meantime, I’ve been exploring ideas of where I want to take my novel series. Reading Terry Pratchett has given me the idea of leaving my current main character for a bit and starting a new plotline with a new one somewhere within the same world. I’m rather eager to get started but I still want to hammer out a few key points in the planning stage first.
